Lansing is a mess. I'm sick of all the partisan bickering and finger-pointing. We need lawmakers who are willing to put their petty differences aside and work together for the good of our community.
I will hold lawmakers' feet to the fire and make sure they are working for us and not the special interests. I support docking lawmakers' pay for failing to balance the budget on time and missing work. I also support posting state spending online so we can hold lawmakers accountable for how our taxpayer dollars are used.
I'm tired of a lot of talk from Lansing with no results. We need to reduce the number of useless commissions and panels that lawmakers seem to think are the answer for everything. All these commissions do is add to layers of bureaucracy and waste tax dollars.
