There are countless issues unfortunately facing our great state. Many of those issues we will address within this website over the coming months. However, the greatest issue and what drives these challenges, is a lack of Visionary Leadership that state most desperately needs.
Over the past 7 years our state has faced one major disaster after the other. Like Education funding, pension system, road funding, health care funding, ethics reform, and just recently the failed V.C. Summer nuclear station. You see we are having to face/react to one major catastrophe, year, after year. We have become reactionary, always dealing with a major problem. Our state leaders must become visionaries. The worst type of government is a reactionary type of governing. Instead of reacting to problems we should be looking to the future and addressing these problems before they become a catastrophe. The taxpayers deserve leadership that will look to the future to plan for all our challenges. Unfortunately, we care more about addressing one major problem each year and who will take us golfing next.
As the next Secretary of State, we will use the office to push for much needed reforms throughout government. We will become the watch dog of all state government. Our focus will be to the future and the challenges we face. No more sitting in a corner trying to avoid the publics eye, we will lead by example. We must have more voices in Columbia leading the conservative message of responsibility, not less.
