    I will not raise taxes except as a last resort and only if I truly believe it is in the best interest of the citizens of Dare County. I will spend as much time as is required of me to fully understand Dare County’s $110.7 million general fund budget, and to be a good steward of the revenue generated from our taxpaying citizens.

    Without question, there is a role for government and its services are not free. However, I evaluate every budget proposal (spending request) to determine whether it's in the long-term fiscal interest of Hamilton County. More times then not, I defer to the private sector to resolve issues not directly tied to the county's business.

    It is not the responsibility of Government to take care of the people. It is an individual responsibility. The only necessity of taxes is to cover basic government functions and infrastructure.

    We have plenty of money if we just cut out special interests and waste. End our 16 year war and scale back our military! People at the bottom pay nothing in taxes and people at the top don't pay their share either! Everyone should chip in something!
