"We can make state government smaller and more efficient, while better serving the needs of our citizens."
There are many areas where we could improve how we get things done in state government. Modernizing how our government processes information and communicates across state agencies and with constituents is a critical step that I will continue to work on.
Just like we do in our home or business, we need to regularly evaluate every expense and program to see if they still make sense. I will continue to fight to make our government more transparent, accountable and responsible with your money. It's important that we are efficient as possible with your tax dollars, and we keep state spending under control. I will continue to oppose any broad based sales or income taxes, and make sure we strive for long-term solutions that preserve all of the things that make our state special.
