Watchdog Indiana Candidate Questions - November 6, 2012, General Election
1. QUESTION: What are your priorities regarding the 2013-2015 state budget? ANSWER: DID NOT RESPOND. RECORD (from campaign website): while Indiana has begun to make full-day kindergarten more widely available, we must continue to push for fully funded, full-day education for students by age five. Most other states provide books as an essential component of free public education - Indiana needs to step up and do the same.
2. QUESTION: Should the non-transportation appropriations from the state’s Motor Vehicle Highway Account be transferred to the state’s General Fund so more of our Indiana Gasoline Tax dollars can be properly spent to meet our transportation needs? ANSWER: DID NOT RESPOND. RECORD (from campaign website): A strong workforce requires strong infrastructure. Central Indiana is a vital economic hub, and shares its benefits with the entire state. To ensure that Indiana does not get left behind, we need to reinvest in our infrastructure, particularly here in central Indiana. Getting people to work efficiently and affordably will only become more important. Our voting citizens deserve the opportunity to consider investing in mass transit. Transportation means more than improving highways and filling potholes. Our airport has tremendous potential for our economy, as does a higher speed, efficient rail line between Indianapolis and Chicago.
3. QUESTION: Should the Automatic Taxpayer Refund law be (a) improved to make refunds more likely, (b) kept as it is, or (c) eliminated? ANSWER: DID NOT RESPOND.

I agree with our civic leaders, university presidents, and our business community that we must emphasize the importance that scientific research plays in our local and state economy. we need to support our workforce with training opportunities in order to nimbly evolve to suit changing business needs.
