What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?

Answer

Property tax relief is a major issue that is affecting the 31st district, and the State's failure to meet its constitutionally-mandated education funding levels has caused school districts to make up the difference in property taxes. Public-sector pensions are crowding out essential government services, and we must work to enact constitutional reforms to keep pension promises while also ending the sweetheart deals that are leading to insolvency. As a veteran, it breaks my heart to see that Legionnaires Disease has continued to plague our Veterans' homes. We should come together to ensure that our veterans are given the best care possible. The economic results of our high taxes have benefitted our neighboring states, to the detriment of our local businesses and our ability to collect tax revenue from local sales. We must work to make this state more competitive with our neighbors.
