Incredibly and unbelievably, our elected officials in 2012 and 2013 ducked the question on how to best fund basic services in Tennessee.
Rather than finding fiscal solutions, they kicked the ball to the general public.
The November 4, 2014 ballot will contain Ballot Measure #3 which, if approved, will ban for all time an income tax in Tennessee.
Those who may say “Hooray!” do not understand the issue – that taxes will eventually go UP, not down. In fact, many Tennesseans don’t even know this will be on the ballot.
Because every child deserves a quality education and a healthy start.
Because police, fire and environmental protections are foundations for safe and healthy communities.
Because food is a basic human necessity and should never be taxed.
Because jobs and business successes are tied to our investments in an educated workforce, effective transportation systems, and other public services.
Because I believe in preserving Liberty for future generations to best fund services lifting Tennessee.
