General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
First and foremost......Vote for the candidate not the party. I am running against an incumbent of many years. Had I not entered the race he would have won by default. This is not the democracy our forefathers planned. Win or lose I will discuss the issues and get the debate into the public. I am for less spending by towns, cities, counties and townships.. If these entities refuse to cut their budgets then legislation will be proposed to cut spending for them. Prorperty taxes are at all time highs, and a successful community has options to diversify their tax base. We need to stop the demagoguery of socio economic class warfare and residential vs business. Communities that work for the majority and not the vocal minority are the most successful. Northwest Indiana has not had a planned strategic vision for years. We pit communities against each other for business relocation, and continue an environment of urban sprawl. I will work for revenue sharing on property taxes, increase transportation infrastructure, actual revenue budgets (replacing projected revenue budgets), increase homeland security funding and work to create a better business environment. I will continue to fight liberal fireworks laws and provide insurance for the uninsured.
