"I propose a society under law, in which individuals are free to pursue their own lives so long as they respect the equal rights of others." - David Boaz
Why should you vote for Coach Bill Maresh?
I am local and you can trust that I will advocate for what is best for our cities.
Champlin and Coon Rapids families, especially our children, should have parks that are clean and beautiful. Our recreation programs need to be strong and offer our families many opportunities for enrichment. By doing so we will help build relationships with our neighbors and create opportunities to serve one another.
Our communities need to to be safe. We must recognize our first responders and honor the service they provide. As many people run from danger our paramedics, firefighters, and police officers run towards danger to serve, protect and even save lives. I will be committed to ensuring we will have the best first responders.
Our schools need to be continually improving, providing necessary resources for all our children. Continued focus on safety is necessary to provide an atmosphere that is both welcoming and conducive to learning.
These things can all happen while keeping our taxes low. We all pay enough taxes already; the key is in spending our tax dollars appropriately.
As your State Representative, I also advocate for the wonderful state of Minnesota, staying true to the conservative values that I believe are important, such as:
When it comes to the government, most people want the government to spend less money, which in turn means taking less of theirs. The government needs to be limited and give the power back to the individual.
All people should have access to affordable health care, just not at the hands of the government. Health care should be governed by a free market, with no government involvement keeping crony capitalism out of the equation. The market would adjust prices of visits and drugs to what people are willing to pay. Health insurance should be purchased through the market, much like auto insurance.
We should have a thriving, prosperous and innovative economy. This type of economy can only be achieved through a free market capitalist system. The removal of regulations, subsidies and arbitrary values, would allow the “good” products and services to flourish and the “bad” ones to fail.
The second amendment protects the infringement on the right to keep and bear arms. Law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves, defend their property and defend their liberty.
As a high school teacher since 1989, I am a supporter of necessary reforms in education. We must help ensure that our children will be able to find jobs and compete in the 21st-century economy.
