Statement: I have spent over 20 years in Information Technology, developing and implementing complex systems. My skills are in analysis and problem solving - skills that our state greatly needs.
I support: no state income tax; spending efficiency; education reform for better schools and less waste; no mileage tax; and carbon capture, not tax. A business-friendly Washington will create jobs, enhance services, and increase tax revenues without having to increase tax rates. We can attract businesses, including clean energy businesses - creating jobs and helping the environment. Solutions do not always have to come in the form of higher taxes.
