TAXES & THE ECONOMY

During these challenging economic times, government should encourage businesses to locate in our state, not to drive them away with increased taxation and excessive regulation. These types of legislation affect all businesses, but especially the job creating small and family-owned operations.

As your representative I will continue to work for ways to:

  • Use tax dollars responsibly
  • Demand accountability in state spending
  • Lower the tax burden for all Minnesotans
  • Provide real property tax relief directly to taxpayers
  • Encourage jobs and growth with competitive tax rates for businesses

In recent years, growth in government spending has far outpaced that of Minnesota’s working families – that’s just not right. Some people in St. Paul have put special interest groups ahead of their constituency. My only special interest group is my constituency and I will continue fighting to keep the government out of your family’s checkbook
