“Indiana has been given a D+ for the conditions of our roads and infrastructure since 2009 by the American Society of Civil Engineers. I support this funding but it needs to pay for itself by ensuring revenue sources created though our highways are reinvested into our road system. This includes Fuel Tax, Sales Tax on fuel, federal aid, trucking fees, and vehicle licenses.”
“As a small business owner, I have seen firsthand how legislation impacts economic development. Decision-making authority should be given to the levels of government closest to the issues, rather than the state micromanaging. Tax increases are NOT necessary. We simply need to give communities control again of their tax dollars so they can invest in roads, infrastructure, or other local projects.”
“The politics of crime tends to focus on the costs directly associated with the criminal justice system, such as the police, courts, and corrections system. However, we must not overlook the intangible costs: the long term effects of psychological trauma or reduced quality of life that victims of crime experience. I support investing in protecting our families so they feel safe in our communities.”
“We have great schools, but they have consistently been asked to do more with less since the current school funding formula redistributes our tax dollars throughout the state. Our schools are already very large, but the reduced funding has made it extremely difficult for them to keep up with the growth. I want to ensure our tax dollars remain at home so our schools can stay competitive.”
