Statement: I am deeply concerned with the state's direction, and I know you are too. We are on an unsustainable spending spree, and attempting to tax our way to a balanced budget simply won't work. Current state leadership has not provided an environment that allows families to prosper. We must turn this around and hold government accountable.
I will continue to work for lower taxes; elimination of obstacles that keep small businesses from growing; protecting private property rights; safeguarding your right to choose your own health care providers. There is much to do. I humbly ask for your vote.
