Now a Candidate
Today I filed my papers to become a candidate for the Wisconsin Assembly - 12th District. This is the seat currently held by Rep. Fred Kessler.
I'm running on who I am - a conservative.
I think the state government should lower taxes. How? Well first by looking for duplicate services and eliminating them. Those who receive money should be held to the highest standards and if they don't meet those standards, they should stop getting the funds.
This budget and previous one's have been put together behind closed doors. Our legislators need to be held accountable, especially when deciding on how to administer money. No budget should be voted on until the citizens of the state have a say in it. We need a daylight budget process.
I also believe that education is priority. The state should encourage the best in schools, no matter if it is a public, private, charter, choice, virtual school or home schooling. What matters is the education received.
In this economy and really at all times, job creation is important. Private industry provides the best avenue for job growth and entrepreneurship. The state should not stand in the way. Less government allows for more freedom to grow in all areas of life including the business climate.
I'll have more on my website within a couple of weeks.
