What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Employment is close to being at all time lows currently. Excessive taxation increases unemployment so cutting taxes reduces it accordingly.

Limited government and low taxes.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

Associate Degree Appleid Scince Fox Valley, Business Administration Degree UW Stout Being a fiscal conservative means spending money wisely. The current Secretary fo State has literally run the office into the basement of the state capitol. I will try to insure fair and honest elections(Election Watchdog) by becoming a member of the State Elections commission. We will also promote term limits for the office which is the number one request I received while obtaining nomination signatures. 40 years in office by Doug Lafollette is long enough.
