General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
If I am elected, I will focus my efforts on these three priorities:

Keeping government in its appropriate role.

Government should provide its services at the lowest reasonable cost to the taxpayers. We need to balance the use of the budget surplus between spending and saving. I will support increased savings to the Permanent Mineral Trust Fund, but will also work to fund the reconstruction and maintenance of state, county and municipal roads, and transmission facilities for electrical and hydrocarbon energy. We need to support self reliance and initiative, economic diversification, and reasonable development, but recognize that not every problem can be solved by throwing money at it. I will work to protect our borders and our civil rights.

Enhancing the productivity and dignity of Wyoming's people.

It is time to expand the healthcare insurance system. If we follow the lead of other states, we can greatly increase the availability and affordability of health insurance, and greatly increase the number of citizens covered. Massachusetts (with the help of insurers), the Heritage Foundation and others have developed various models that we can adapt and adopt to help solve this nearly universal problem. Increasing coverage will give people dignity and choice without breaking them or the state's general fund. I will support workforce development, not only for college-bound students, but also support vocational skills and programs for traditional and non-traditional students, especially at the community colleges.

Keeping the taxpayers? tax burden fair.

Wyoming taxpayers deserve not to be taxed more than absolutely necessary. Taxes must be levied fairly and consistently and collected courteously, promptly and conveniently. I will support permanently eliminating the sales tax on food, and work to relieve the undue burden placed upon many taxpayers? by skyrocketing property values.

I will work hard for Wyoming. I would appreciate your vote.
