In an increasingly competitive world you can no longer afford mere talk about conservative values. I promise action to protect agriculture, defend your PUD power heritage, reduce regulations upon your businesses, and to ensure that local governments can build and maintain roads, utilities, and provide police and emergency services. We must strengthen our primary educational system-without raising taxes-and qualified students must be able to obtain trade and college educations at a reasonable cost. Above all else, we must limit government growth. I promise to address your concerns and to deliver results!
