The most important issues in this
race:
Jobs, crime and home foreclosures. We need to quit the piecemeal approach to fixing our tax structure. If we address the individual and business together and make it fair for both, jobs will come back. Restoring local revenue sharing so police and fire can be adequately staffed will be the first step to reducing crime .

Finally, I support a two-year moratorium on all foreclosures as an initial step to keeping individuals and families in their homes.
