“Too many in Harrisburg forget that it is the people’s money. They forget that too many in our state are struggling to get by. That’s why I will work for common sense cost controls and reasonable items like a natural gas severance tax dedicated to education before asking more of taxpayers.”

  • Implement smart cost controls to ensure the state spends only what it has and avoid large, broad-based tax increases
  • Help control property taxes by passing fair pension reforms that save taxpayers billions of dollars in the long-term while protecting the benefits of current enrollees
  • Limit any government spending increases to less than the rate of inflation
  • Eliminate unfunded mandates to reduce costs at the school, county and municipal levels
