ScrambleWatch Q&A: Republican David Gowan on Taxes

Republican David Gowan will face Republican Frank Antenori and Democrat Andrea Dalessandro in the race for two seats in Legislative District 30 in the House of Representatives. We asked him some questions on taxes.

Do you support the repeal of the state property tax?

Yes.

SInce it will cost the state $250 million, what should the state cut to make up for the lost revenue?

Stop the frivolous spending.

Do you support borrowing for school construction?

I’m not a big borrowing fan. No.

Any other quick thoughts on tax or budget reform you’d like to share?

I believe in more of a sales tax instead of property or income taxes.

  1. I have a quick favor to ask of the interviewers. When a candidate states they will make up for the lost revenue of repealing a tax with cutting “frivolous spending,” can you please ask them what items in the budget they would cut? The non-vitals do not make up a very large portion of the state’s budget, and some of those non-vitals are very beneficial to the state.
