Statement: I believe in ideals that made this country exceptional: limited government, balanced budgets, private property rights, personal control in health care, quality education, strong transportation infrastructure, and the principle that government serves the people - people do not serve the government.
Let’s make Washington the best place to live, work and do business. That means improving permitting processes, a simpler tax structure with low taxes, reducing costs of workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance, cutting excessive regulations, and fostering private-sector job creation to get Washington working again. I ask for your support for a better future for us and our families.
