Reason for Seeking Public Office:
Government functions best when all involved work together to put the interests of our citizens ahead of partisan politics. While they may have disagreed about method, in the past members of both Parties shared the goal of promoting our state, protecting the rights of all our citizens, and safeguarding our environment.
In the first year of the current biennium, drastic cuts and attention to a rigid social agenda have replaced these goals without regard to the cost to our taxpayers, our businesses, our public servants, our children, and our seniors. These policies, often determined and funded by out-of-state interests, will again lead to costly lawsuits against the state and downshift onto local property tax payers,jst as they did in the 2010-2012 legislative term.
