This year 189 folks took part in my 2016 Legislative Survey – an all time high. I appreciate everyone who participated and shared the survey link on social media. Many of the participants also provided comments to support their survey answers, and I’ve included a couple of my favorites below. So without further delay, here are the results:
Q2 comment: Our state income tax is the highest in the southeast and higher than Illinois. It is a hindrance to economic growth and a magnet for Florida and Tennessee for wealthy second home full time residents.

Q9 comment: If you have to ask then you may part of the 'swamp'!
