Platform: My top two issues are lowering taxes and fighting for small business. RI pays some of the highest effective total state and local tax rates in the country. The median household income family pays $8,697 annually which is 27% higher than the national average. I will work to cut fraud and unnecessary spending from the $9.6 billion dollar budget and put that money back in the pockets of the RI taxpayer.
Collectively small business owners are the largest employer in RI. I will work to reduce the red tape and onerous business regulations that prevent entrepreneurs from starting or growing businesses in our state. I would stop the corporate welfare given to special interests and out of state businesses and use that money to ease the tax burden of the small businesses in our state.
