Statement: We must hold state government accountable. That's why Ross Hunter opposed wasteful spending, unnecessary tax increases and worked to close special interest tax loopholes. Despite these tough times, Ross focused on results. He protected education funding - rewriting state law to make school budgets more focused on classrooms while improving teacher and principal evaluations. Ross ensured we begin construction on 520 within 12 months creating thousands of construction jobs.
Ross knows it takes responsibility not rhetoric to rebuild our economy, maintain a stable and responsible balanced budget, and ensure tax dollars are spent wisely. Ross Hunter: Moderate, Bipartisan, Proven Leadership.
