What changes, if any, would you propose if elected?
As referenced above, I will insist on a moratorium on all new state taxes.
The General Assembly has a transparency problem with its citizens, so I’ll insist on a permanent live streaming and archiving of all General Assembly proceedings.
I’ll support fair, bipartisan redistricting at both the state and federal levels, something that most voters regardless of party affiliation agree with.
Finally, I will ensure money is spent where it was originally promised. For example, casino revenues were supposed to go towards education programs, but through mismanagement, the General Assembly sent the money elsewhere.
The same thing happened several years ago when the revenue from the gasoline tax was diverted away from Frederick County roads. Legislators are not fulfilling the promises they made to their constituents.
There is a major lack of discipline in Annapolis. I will ensure earmarked money is spent appropriately.
What is one thing you would do differently from your challengers?
I will bring people together and not play politics. I will work with people regardless of their political affiliation and deliver results that create local jobs, improve schools and reduce traffic congestion.
How do you plan on working with people with views different from your own?
I have a record of working with people. In business you have to work with a variety of people with different viewpoints. In law enforcement you must work together with people who are in stressful situations. Success is when people work together. Failure is when people focus on divisions.
