Al Lawson on Budget & Economy

 

 


We are still rebuilding from the Recession; focus on jobs

Jobs and the Economy: Good jobs are the most important part of our community. They lift families out of poverty and provide happiness, security, and relief to North Florida residents. One of my top priorities is to ensure that North Florida's economy improves and strengthens. A good job is the American Dream: We are still rebuilding from the Recession, but we are resilient, hardworking, and determined to revive North Florida.

Supports federal spending to promote economic growth.

Lawson supports the PVS survey question on federal stimulus

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
