To keep Indiana Fiscally Responsible and a great State to raise a family and do business in. I will work as hard to keep the jobs we already have, as we do to bring new jobs to our area. I will protect our 1st & 2nd amendment rights and the sanctity of life and I will do all that I can to” Make Government Work for You”.
As a State Representative these past 10 years I have voted for a balanced budget with no tax increases and have worked to stop government overspending. I have worked to increase funding to our local schools, improve child protection, increase our homegrown energy production and to continue the record-breaking road building that is occurring through Major Moves. I have had meetings with my constituents and made tough decisions with energy and determination. I will continue to be a Leader who Listens because the future of our children and grandchildren depend on the actions we take today.
