Why should voters choose you in this election?

I will be a strong conservative voice in the fight to restore conservative principles to our state government. I will be a constant advocate for business owners, taxpayers and free market capitalism. Finally, I will work to eliminate the $8.2 billion unaccountable slush fund (known as Other Funds) by incorporating these funds into the General Funds and forcing accountability.
