Issue Position: It's the Spending, Stupid!

Issue Position

Our state budget is in a mess right now. And guess what? It's Dover's bad habit of too much spending! Delaware taxpayers have spent far more money paying for a bloated state government than we can afford. When the federal government spends too much money, they just print more. State government can't print money, all we can do is cut the excess or raise taxes. In fact, in just 8 years our state spending rose by more than $1 billion. That's billion with a "b"! It's an outrageous increase for a small state like ours. Just like I've done in the legislature, I'll use my position as State Treasurer to fight for a constitutional limit on state spending to get our bad habit under control. As Delaware's Treasurer, I will review every bill before I sign any checks. And I'll make sure that you, the taxpayer, know how we are spending YOUR MONEY!
