Bonusgate and the pay raise scandal have tarnished the reputation of the General Assembly. As a representative, I would support efforts to limit campaign contributions and increase campaign finance reporting requirements. Legislative budgets, expenditures, and audits should be publicly available, and legislative budget surpluses should be repaid to the public treasury. Former state employees should be barred from lobbying their former agencies for a reasonable amount of time after the end of their public employment. As far as possible, all government contracts should be subject to competitive bidding. And no one should ever receive public money for partisan political activities.
