In today's world job creation is a legislator's job one. But, we can't create jobs when we over-burden the employer with taxes. To grow our economy, we need to find ways to empower the private sector -- not the government. Small business owners are the primary job creators. It's important to create a business friendly environment with low taxes, fair regulations and affordable health care. And, who better to deal with job creation than someone who has actually employed individuals? As a small business owner, I've provided jobs for hundreds of area residents over the last 35 years. In Frankfort, I will use my experience to fight for legislation that will protect the jobs we already have and attract more good paying jobs to the district.
