Our vision for America is a land of well-kept scenic roads and highways, a place where driving is an enjoyable pastime. Our vision for America is a land with a robust energy infrastructure, one on which we can depend even on an unusually blustery day. Our vision for America is a land where the sight of a police car gives us a sense of assurance, not fear.
We want to see our crumbling roads fixed. At the same time, Lansing already squanders much of what it receives from us and has burned us time after time.
I’m advocating something that allows us to fix that--and fix it permanently! The Build-A-Budget tool in Corruption Slayer/Representation 2.0 allows voters to specify the state’s spending priorities, not Lansing bureaucrats!
This will allow us to easily eliminate the pork barrel projects that are squandering our tax dollars!
We can also take a common-sense approach: selecting contractors who will do the job right and provide the best value (instead of selecting sub-par contractors arbitrarily because they happen to be the lowest bidders--roads which then fail early and must be replaced at taxpayer expense), investing in better roads which--in the long run--costs taxpayers far less, and only accepting bids which come from firms who will stand behind their work and offer warranties on their projects.
Combined with these strategies, the Build-A-Budget tool in Corruption Slayer/Representation 2.0 will enable citizens to fund the roads we actually need while eliminating bureaucrats’ pet projects!
Also, I encourage you to look at the other good ideas that the other candidates are offering: Corruption Slayer allows us to achieve all these good ideas!
