I am so happy to tell you all of Senator Brent Waltz from District 36. I met him recently at the State House and after I heard him address the fiscal tax policy folks a couple weeks ago, I spoke to him to thank him for his presentation and to let him know I am thrilled by his conviction and passion for service. We've talked by phone since then and he accepted my invitation to make a You Tube presentation of his property tax repeal plan.
He might be young but he AUTHORED SJ8, a revolutionary property tax repeal plan. He also gives away his entire taxpayer funded pension to charity, and while he has served since 2004, he has not been sucked in by power or ego to become one of the "elites". He truly is our representative and a devoted conservative. He plans to re-introduce property tax elimination in the 2009 session.
He actually said to me that he "serves at my pleasure". And he MEANT it! I admit those words cause me to be bit giddy...and I never get giddy around politicians...well except for Andy Horning. Maybe its because most politicians serve themselves first and we are almost always an inconvenient after thought.
Senator Waltz has the COURAGE to go against the entrenched insider game for us. He opposed raising sales tax outside of Marion county to fund that stadium even though it was unpopular. He also is opposed to that proposed stadium bailout to fund the missing operating budget that Peterson, Fred Glass and the C.I.B did not negotiate for in the deal with Ir$ay.
Senator Waltz is working very hard for property tax repeal and together, with Senator Mike Young, put together a viable plan to eliminate property tax for homeowners AND lower the sales tax! Does that have you curious how they can do it? Well stay tuned, because we're planning to make a You Tube presentation of the plan with the Senators.
Senate candidate Steve Keltner told me that cannot wait to get elected to start working with him! Keltner also told me that he is anxious to work with Senators Delph and Young too! Can you imagine a pack of practical, people-first Senator Statesmen working together on our behalf in the next general assembly? Keltner will work seamlessly with these guys.
Senator Waltz wants the constitution and the rule of law. And he loves open and accountable government. He's the kind of guy that KEEPS HIS PROMISES and owns his words by his actions. He has the heart of a public servant and loves Indiana and America.
Today, HFFT officially endorses Senator Brent Waltz for re-election. You owe it to yourself and to Indiana to read his simple and sincere website and get familiar with his positions. Call or write him with questions. Or if you would rather, just post your question here and I'll get it right over to him and publish his answer on this blog.
Senator Waltz is the right public servant who deserves your vote if live in District 36!
He even posts his cell phone on his website! Go figure! Go vote for him!
