As citizens, we need to work together to hold State and local government accountable. For example, during years of declining revenue, our state payroll increased while unaccountable bureaucrats continued signing contracts to lease office space that was unneeded and often never used.
City governments are utilizing resources for private gain, fire districts engaging in questionable practices, and school districts across the state are being accused of engaging in partisan political activities with taxpayer dollars intended to be spent in our children's classrooms.
We will work to expose government entities at all levels that misuse taxpayer dollars and abuse the citizen's trust.
Finally, we will highlight ways government can eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse by tapping the free enterprise system for more services, ending corporate welfare, and the business of government entrepreneurship, which allows some to become very wealthy by milking our tax dollars from the government.
We will defend and encourage the expansion of the term limits passed by voters as they bring new people with new ideas to government; keep government more closely connected with the people and help fight corruption in the political process.
Legislature Attempts to Weaken Initiative Rights
This session, the legislature is considering a variety of bills that will extremely restrict citizens' opportunity to take the lead on legislative issues through the initiative process.
Missourians' initiative rights are extremely important and must be protected. Initiatives are an important tool for citizens to use when the legislature refuses to take action on important issues, and we must ensure this tool remains a viable option for Missourians to use.
