Respecting Precious Tax Dollars

I’ve heard from so many people who say, “Government has enough money. They need to learn how to make it stretch before they come back for more.” I can certainly understand that point of view. I will make driving efficiency in state government one of my top priorities. Where there is waste or duplication, we need to cut it out. Where we’ve lost track of our real priorities, we need to get back on track by respecting every tax dollar and seeing to its proper use.

It is up to elected leaders to prioritize and streamline, to guard every tax dollar as though we paid it ourselves, and that is my commitment to you.
