  • "To ensure that State contracts are properly vetted as part of a transparent bidding process, ensuring that there is more than one bid for a contract."
  • "To revamp the state’s antiquated tax code allowing individuals and small business to claim losses to property and promote capital spending."
  • "To create state tax incentives for small businesses equal in proportion to that enjoyed by major corporations."
