I will do everything I can to end the corruption. The problem is much easier to fix than most people tend to believe.
How can we fix government corruption?
If someone is running for office they better have a reason for running. If they are running for office to be a career politician… then we shouldn’t keep them in office.
I will be upfront, my main reason for running is to fix the education system in Alabama, and stop tax dollars from being wasted.
I will work to impose term limits on every office in the state that does not have term limits to prevent people becoming a career politician. I completely understand that the State of Alabama is mostly a red state… however if a political party can’t produce someone after their incumbent has had 2 terms then that is their problem, not the state’s problem.
Public Government Books
The state government shouldn’t have secrets. There is nothing in the state office that shouldn’t be a completely open book. Including our spending. I challenge Alabamians to make their government let them know where their money is going. A good portion of your money is spent on taxes. You have every right to know where that money is going.
If we were to keep everything out in the open we can also have people give better ideas.
Live Government Proceedings
Facebook Live, and Youtube also should be used to record any state government proceedings. Most people won’t watch it… and that is ok. However, newsagents could use the footage to report anything of relevance AND it would be documented for public viewing. Not only would this keep doors open for our government, it would also create an easily accessible source for reporting.
I am sure by the time 2018 gets here, there will be many more ideas.
