Robert Pratt asked Burrows exactly what is motivates him to run for the position and what he stands for. Burrows responded, saying, "I feel like I could bring some conservative West Texas values to Austin. . . I'll be a staunch defender of property rights. . . You'll also see some fundamental economical principles that I'd like to apply to education. . ."

Burrows also strongly stated that he'll respect the rule of law. "You shouldn't have to go hire a lawyer like me to go figure out what the law is. It needs to be plain, plainly written, so everybody can do it, so everybody can be a law abiding citizen. . .", Burrows said in the interview.
