Promoting Farms and Business.
“To spur economic growth, I’ll use my experience as president of the chamber of commerce to promote the local small businesses and farms that create jobs in our state.”
-Jon Hansen, South Dakota Public Broadcasting, 2010
Government should provide farmers and businesses with a stable, non-intrusive environment for creating jobs, growing crops, raising livestock, and providing products and services. Jon is committed to providing a stable farm and business environment by keeping taxes low and eliminating overbearing regulations. People and industry, not government, create jobs and a thriving economy, and so Jon believes government should promote, not impede business.
During his time in office, Jon never voted to raise taxes and argued against fee increases that were harmful to farmers. If elected, Jon will fight to keep taxes and fees low so that farmers and business can thrive, create jobs, and strengthen our economy.
