No comment.

What is your one big idea?

End state income tax! It will return an average of $4,100 per household to a family’s budget in Hilo! It will help thousands of families pay for the rising cost of gas, food and heating oil and other debt. Also, force the state Legislature to streamline and cut government waste.
