Free enterprise is key to national prosperity

Question topic: Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Daugaard: Strongly Agree

Good stewardship achieves a structurally balanced budget

The best example of good stewardship is what we did together two years ago to achieve a structurally balanced budget. I am strongly committed to maintaining that structural balance. Some states are still struggling to achieve balance. Minnesota's deficit is $1.1 billion. Mississippi is short. New Jersey is short. So are New York and Vermont. Illinois, Kentucky, and others face enormous pension shortfalls.

Our current year's budget is running better than we projected, providing funds for one-time projects in FY13. As other states are looking where to cut, we can look where shall we spend these dollars. I believe that good stewardship would employ one-time funds to improve our structural soundness by eliminating a liability, building or improving an asset, or endowing a program for the future. Over the past two years, our state agencies have undertaken dozens of projects and initiatives to "reinforce the floor" of state government and to be good stewards of our tax dollars.

Invite, increase, and innovate--for economic development

I propose to elevate the Office of Economic Development to cabinet level. I plan to be personally involved, every day, in our state's economic development efforts.

I intend to be South Dakota's #1 salesman. Often, a governor is called upon to be a "deal-closer," and that is an important role. I will also be a "door-opener," and I will use my office to seek out new opportunities for our state. Our economic development efforts will use a three-pronged approach: invite, increase, and innovate.
