I believe that the legislature must work with the executive office to assure the development of, “BEST BUSINESS PRACTICES”, in our state agencies through a strong audit program. Basic services must be protected. Programs must be reviewed to determine if they are pertinent to the needs of the state and of its citizens. Job retention and creation in the private sector must be a priority for our state. I promise to work towards these goals.
