What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Taxes. We need to cap property tax growth at 5 percent per year and get rid of assessments for current homeowners. We need to get rid of the car tax as fast as possible. We also need to repeal the tax on retirement income. The people in this district are overtaxed. Many retired people and families with children are leaving the area. This will continue until tax relief is provided."

Why should voters elect you?

"I am more in touch with the voters and understand their needs better than my opponent."
