I believe in Alabama, if we as a state:
Keep taxes low
Maintain reasonable regulations
Invest in job-creating infrastructure
Prepare our students for the future
Keep the people informed and involved in the process
Have better long-range planning
Develop partnerships with our Faith-based organizations, our civic organizations and our good corporate citizens
Work together and cooperate
Have pride in our state, nation and communities
I believe if we do this, our state will do more business, which in turn will generate more tax revenue through sales tax (without raising tax rates) and as a result our schools, towns, cities, counties and all their entities will have better budgets to get the job done.
And, our people will have jobs and they will be better paying jobs, too.
