Issues

As a state, we have everything that we need to rank #1 in business growth and job creation. Our quality of life is incredible, we are a national leader in technology, and we have an excellent workforce. If we commit to improving education, lowering the cost of doing business, and addressing our state’s unfunded liabilities, our state will be on a solid path for the future. In order for this to happen, we have to enact common sense policies.
