Brent Fine - East Valley Tribune: Candidates

Brent Fine independent

"As an Independent, my motivation for running for office is two-fold: 1) to offer a socially moderate, fiscally conservative candidate who is neither tied to a party or ideology and is willing to work with both parties to develop sensible and pragmatic solutions; and 2) to challenge our broken political system that has allowed special interests to control our policy decisions through the corrupting power of money and influence. Let’s return to a system where elected officials are responsible to the people, not power brokers.

My key issues:

End tax giveaways to corporations -- 2/3 to 3/4 of which are paying only the $50 minimum tax -- at the expense of properly funding education (classroom and maintenance, not administration), children's health care and other essential state services;

“Truth in Budgeting” -- stop the “shell game“ of sweeping funds dedicated for specific purposes (e.g., state parks, mortgage settlement) to the General Fund; and make the budget process transparent by giving enough advance public notice of hearings and making them more accessible for public testimony (e.g., holding informational hearings around the state; video conferencing);

Enact tough lobbyist reform to stop the “buying” of legislative access and votes through free meals and gifts (e.g., sports tickets).
