Campaign themes

  • Legislator pay cut
Excerpt: "He will block lawmakers from getting pay raises and pass a law making it more difficult for legislators to raise their own salaries by requiring voters to approve any salary increase for politicians."
  • Property taxes
Excerpt: "Karner will work to hold the line on property taxes by supporting legislation to cap outrageous property tax increases that we’ve been hit with in our area."
