Issues & Priorities
I believe we need more tax relief for individuals, property owners and small business owners to create a more competitive environment. It was not to long ago where we focused on job creation, now we have the jobs and need to focus on employee attraction from other states.
One major local concern is flood insurance reduction or elimination all together through a diversion or dike rebuilding. I have been in constant communication with our Federal & State legislatures and will possibly consider drafting a bill for state funding if our current approach does not come through.
I am a big believer in protecting our state’s great outdoors and natural resources. North Dakota’s farmers are some of our state’s best conservationists.
