Top Priorities if Elected
  • My tax philosophy is simple: Don't overburden the people with excessive tax responsibilities. When the people are over-taxed, liberty is lost.
  • I believe that public money is the people's money and should be spent wisely.
  • I believe the government has enough of taxpayer money, and the government simply needs to live within its means.
