No rainy day fund; reduce all spending

Q: Do you support establishing a "rainy day" fund?

A: While this idea sounds good, it allows legislatures to become complacent.

Q: Your legislative priorities if elected?

A: Reduction of spending, less taxation, looking at privatizing some public usages. We need to reverse the education funding. Instead of funding schools and school boards, we need to fund students' education and let those families determine the school in the matter of compete to educate. These funds cannot be withdrawn from the family nor the student, yet awarded monthly to the educator (teacher or professor) and distributed through deductions those educators have contract with (schools, school boards, and administrators).
