What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"Taxes! Our cities, counties and state are spending too much. Our government must learn fiscal discipline before we as a government end up in the same situation as Greece. Four years ago, the present government was left with a $1.6 billion rainy day fund, which was squandered in a matter of weeks. The current tax burden is chasing all of Maryland's millionaires and large earners out of the state; we must cease this hemorrhaging. If we scaled back current annual increases to the rate of inflation, it would make a great deal of a difference."
Why should voters elect you?
"Having been in fiduciary positions in which I was responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars of the public's money, I've demonstrated proven ability."
