Every election year many politicians beat the same old drum of less spending and fiscal responsibility. Most of these people don't have experience in budgeting the publics money. As an elected official, I understand that it takes money to improve our roads and to have a police force and other necessities. In addition to fiscal responsibility, leaders should also have ideas to raise revenue! I do not believe in raising taxes! There are several ideas that are on my website that will raise revenue without raising taxes! Please read these Ideas and understand that they are just ideas, however if every representative in Pierre had an idea that raised $2 million, our state would not be in financial dire straights!
