Statement: I have fought to rein in spending, find middle ground on education reforms, and ensure school funding is not used as leverage for tax increases that only hurt our struggling economy. Friends, we must get our economy moving. We can start by removing the regulatory burdens on small businesses that make it difficult to grow and create jobs.
We must prioritize education in our state budget. That’s why I sponsored “Fund Education First” to make education our priority, as our state Constitution requires. It has been my honor to serve as your Representative. I would appreciate your vote.
