Statement: As a teacher and taxpayer, I care more about holding government accountable, creating jobs, and improving public schools than partisan bickering. Like you, I am raising a family, paying a mortgage and doing my part to improve our community.
Government should be tightening its belt with smarter, common sense budgeting and not raising taxes on the middle class. We must make wise investments in schools, job training, and economic growth; and support our biggest job creators-small businesses. I am endorsed by Deb Wallace, and will carry on her tradition of low taxes, independent thinking, and listening to the community.
