Statement: Jan Angel spent her first term fighting taxes and uncontrolled spending. It's disrespectful for government to spend more than it takes in, burdening families with higher taxes. Many are laid off or had hours and pay reduced. Jan is working to strengthen our economy and get you back to work! You can't raise taxes on small businesses and expect to create jobs. Rather than pass the buck to local school districts, Jan believes we should fund education first, removing politics from education.

"I continue to fight for accountability, efficiency and transparency... things you should expect from your government." Jan Angel
