Very Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

Last year I personally held 5 Town Hall meetings. Spoke to many Rotary clubs and other organizations on low-income housing. I did the research and educated the community. I pushed back against the assault and intrusion on our community. I have had to push back against other elected officials trying to stop me from educating the public. Through my leadership on the HCDE board, we dispatched an out of control Superintendent. Ended bad programs, dropped the budget from 100 Million to 88 million and not only held property taxes to the effective tax rate for 2 years but in 2015 reduced taxes below the effective tax rate. I kept a bad Early to Rise program from being voted on. That program would put Gov. in charge of infant education. I work daily to give back to my community through volunteering.
