Ken Notes: I`m in but I have been preaching the sermon for 12 Years now with no one making the trip across the isle nor applauding. There are some areas we could try again. Here is my short list:
  • Restructure WEDC, improve reporting and access while working with all Counties to help pay a local professional as part of the WEDC team.

  • Use tax incentives to help growing companies. Make them available to all growing companies. No new jobs no benefits.

  • Modify TIF laws to mirror how they are actually used.

  • Provide health care for all state and LOCAL employees including teachers.

  • Work with power companies, business, and the legislature to create affordable renewable energy.

  • Get creative in housing the most in need using nontraditional products, self policing, ownership, education, and employment...
