Dave's Platform Priorities
Please look for more of my ideas on on my brochure and on this website
Economic and Political Beliefs
History demonstrates that a free market provides the best and most efficient system to build wealth and preserve freedom. Government services are necessary but the cost of providing them needs to be minimized. Generally, the government should not replace or compete with the market economy.
Civic governments are unique in the sense that there is a clear and direct link between services provided and the resident tax payers. Civic governments can provide important leadership, support and resources to many local initiatives. A city is the most flexible and dynamic form of government, being large enough to make important changes to infrastructure, services and quality of life. Strong civic government is a key component of a good quality of life for residents as well as being a key catalyst in attracting business to the community. Taxes need to be minimized to allow home affordability, business success and sustainability. Excessive taxes, caused by excessive government spending, is the cause of much of the world's problems.
