Statement: I have served the 9th District for the past three years. Two issues that continue to surface throughout the District are jobs and the state budget. We need as many people working as possible and remove impediments from business so that they can hire and keep people employed. With the economy in its current condition, the state needs to live within its means. We need to prioritize spending and use the taxpayer's money wisely eliminating government waste.  With my business background along with accounting and economics disciplines, I understand the impact state government has on each family and business.
