Campaign Kick-off Fundraiser

More details on the event will be provided when they are available. Please mark the date on your calendar for Wednesday, January 11th!

Outreach to Small Businesses

Over the past few days I have been reaching out to small business owners in the community to seek their opinion on state government. All of them have essentially expressed the same concern: Don't raise taxes!

The business owners that I have spoken with want the government off their back. They know that high taxes and excessive regulations are bad for their business.

As a fiscal conservative, I will not vote to raise taxes. In fact, I will work to lower taxes and to decrease the overall size of government. Doing this will create a better economic environment for small businesses, which will lead to higher productivity and job creation.

Website is Up and Running

Our new campaign website (www.jonhardister.com) is up and running. Please check it out and share it with your friends. Also, feel free to provide me with feedback if you have any comments or suggestions!

Well, that's it for now. More campaign updates will be coming soon...
