Bedwell listens, won’t waste tax dollars

Why do we always see little fraction-of-a-percent sales tax hike measures thrown at us?

It’s not inflation. When inflation makes people spend more, government takes in more already in sales tax.

It’s ongoing government mismanagement and greed. Drew Bedwell supports basic programs such as Children and Families First, but government funding for the anger management training of 7-year-olds can go. Government buying open space at your expense decreases the tax base and in turn means you must pay more.

Drop tax-and-spend incumbents. Vote Drew Bedwell for sound management, balance, and for someone who listens in government.
