I believe in lower taxes and reduced spending. Period. I believe the best way to restrain the growth of government and keep taxes low is to elect committed conservatives to the state legislature and hold them accountable for their votes. Too many elected officials vote too often to protect entrenched interests, expand the scope of government, and keep taxes higher than is necessary to pay for a responsible and restrained state government. I am proud of my conservative philosophy and unapologetic about my belief that lower taxes stimulate economic growth and keep government from growing too large.
