    During the last 8 years, we suffered over 40 tax increases to fund pet projects like cricket stadiums and overpaying for electric car services, all while providing tax breaks to developers. This needs to stop. Specifically, I will work as a representative for Lawrence Township to push for transparency and investigate misappropriation of funds.

    I will never pledge to do anything I cannot promise to do. Therefore, I cannot pledge that I will never vote to raise taxes. Raising taxes will have to be justified to me by any proposed ordinance or body that wishes to raise them before I will vote for higher taxes.

    In 10 years on the Perry Township Advisory Board, we've balanced the budget every year (sometimes with a surplus) and I've never voted for a tax increase.

    No new taxes ever! Reduce government to smallest level possible. Eliminate the Dept. of Education to local control. Replace income tax with flat tax beginning for incomes over $36k and also a graduated consumption tax that begins after first $100 of purchase price, increasing in rate the higher the price of a good.

    I am completely for Taxes and Taxpayer's Money being used for these things set out above. However the current Assessor spends his Budget from Tax Dollars on Luxury Cars and Custom Furniture instead of investing in our employees, technology, the office, and our citizens.
