Signature Policies

Opposition to Tax Increases: During his 2018 campaign, Marcus Wiedower pledged to vote no on raising taxes. He hasn’t had that opportunity yet, because the only votes recently have been about lowering taxes, which he supported.

Local Control for Transportation Projects: Wiedower has argued for more local control over highway construction, saying that we shouldn’t be “a donor community to Atlanta transportation projects.”
