Though there are many aspects to serving as a state representative in this great Commonwealth, it appears as though one of the largest matters of concern has been the management of spending.
The current spending in Harrisburg is excessive and in some cases reckless; therefore I have supported efforts to cap state spending to ensure fiscal responsibility. The residents in the 59th district find a way to live within a budget, so should our commonwealth.
Until spending can be reigned in and misuses identified, I can't see the purpose of increasing Harrisburg's largest source of tax revenue. Therefore, I simply will not vote for any kind of a tax increase.
