Over the last decade, about half a million people have moved out of Michigan, taking billions of dollars of Michigan’s economy and tax dollars with them. If we don’t prepare for this shortfall, the state will have to aggressively raise taxes on fewer residences in order to continue to pay for governmental services. As your State Representative, I would focus on governmental reforms that would prevent tax increases and continue governmental services.
I know that Michigan can become strong economically, but only if we change our behaviors that have weakened us. I know that over regulating and taxing has created an environment that has driven away industry that was once the foundation of Michigan's economy.
"People should enjoy the benefits of their hard work, instead of paying for the incompetence of government."
I have refused to ask for any political endorsements that have asked for legislation that would require funding from taxpayers or give any special consideration to an organization. I believe the role of a State Representative is to represent the people of the district.
