Statement: You deserve state government that controls costs and limits the burden placed on taxpayers; a state legislature that keeps taxes low so families can pay their bills; a legislature that encourages job creation through regulatory restraint; a legislature that prioritizes law enforcement; a legislature that prepares students to succeed in tomorrow's economy; and, a legislature that protects services for the elderly and our veterans. As County Council Chairman, I crafted sensible budgets that allowed Pierce County to meet and exceed these obligations -- without raising taxes. You can trust me to lead openly and effectively as your next State Representative.
