Keith Goodenough on Budget & Economy

Democratic Senate Challenger


More fiscal conservatism needed in the legislature

A large majority of the voters in Wyoming describe themselves as fiscally conservative, are you one of those? And if so, what does that imply?

In general political terms, that would mean that you believe in the following: efficient and frugal governmental spending, depending on the private sector to power economic growth, governmental decision making at a level of government as close to the people as possible, respect for private property rights, and perhaps a few additional lesser points.

From the mid 1980's until the recent past, the fiscal liberals in the Legislature have mostly focused on building governmental agencies whose mission statement is directed towards creating economic development through the spending of taxpayer's money.
