As individuals we all strive to be fiscally responsible and live within our financial means, whatever they may be. As residents of district 38 we expect our government to do the same. Florida's taxpayers deserve nothing less than to have their hard-earned tax dollars spent in the most efficient and accountable manner. This is a time to be more fiscally responsible, not to pass the burden off to hardworking Floridians by raising taxes. We work too hard to continue to have our government reach into our pockets to fill a void it created. I will continue to work hard to safeguard your hard earned dollars from wasteful government spending.
