Statement: I am a small business owner and know what it takes to create jobs. I believe that runaway state government spending is our number one problem. Rising taxes and increasing government regulation has to be stopped!
We must create an environment that allows our private sector to thrive and produce the tax revenues needed to protect our citizens, educate our children, and maintain infrastructure. We must prioritize spending and focus on the basic functions of government, our state government tries to do too many things for too many people. I will work to restore trust and accountability to state government.
