Issue Position: Health Care

Jan. 1, 2014

The current health care system is to expensive for our community and needs to be overhauled. Obama Care is destined to fail. It is based upon a penalty system forcing our small business owners to pay penalties for not being able to afford to offer this benefit to their employees. Physicians are being forced by multimillion dollar insurance corporations to accept continually decreasing reimbursements for participating in an insurance carrier, thus leaving patients and families less choices in finding an adequate physician. Small businesses are penalized for age discrepancies, driving up the cost of health care. Preventive care reduces long term health expenses.

Issue Position: Transportation

Jan. 1, 2014

This should be a high priority for the state. The administration must stop removing revenue sources from the transportation fund to help balance the budget. The increased traffic in our district comes from other jurisdictions and there needs to be safety upgrades for our residents as a result of this increased traffic, such as dedicated turn lanes and more traffic circles at priority intersections.

Issue Position: Education

Jan. 1, 2014

Our children are our future heritage. Our education system is number one nationally and we must continue to lead the nation for the future of our children. We must continue to strengthen a curriculum that better prepares our students for long term jobs once they have completed high school and community college. Our blue ribbon schools need to be continually re-evaluated to ensure that the high level of academics they were providing when they received the award remains in effect. A higher focus on classroom size, school construction budgets and maintenance programs must be maintained.
