KELLY STEWART对你的承诺

为了让我们获得更大的成就,以下是Kelly将会采取的五项措施。

Kelly

一、冻结房地产税

Johns Creek的房产主需要更有意义的税收减免政策。作为我们下一任的州议员(State Representative),Kelly坚信我们需要增加住宅地产税减免(homestead exemption),她将通过立法来对抗房产税的增长,确保Fulton县不征收额外的房产税,冻结房产的评估价值。税不该涨到迫使房产主付不起税而卖房的地步。这样的立法将会阻止房产的估价上涨,除了房子被卖掉或者你翻新了房子以外,每年居民的房产税都将保持不变。

二、取消所得税

目前,美国有九个州没有州所得税,包括:阿拉斯加州,佛罗里达州,内华达州,新罕布什尔州,南达科他州,田纳西州,德克萨斯州,华盛顿州和怀俄明州。

诚实的佐治亚州人是唯一被征税的,访问者、游客、非法滞留外籍人士或地下组织犯罪分子他们都无需缴税。

Kelly致力于改革佐治亚州的税法,取消州所得税,并以佐治亚州的公平税法取而代之,每个人都可以被公平对待,整个层面,广泛缴纳消费税。坚决要避免漏洞,无需审计。

对于佐治亚州的工人们来说,这就意味着他们立马就会看到上涨的工资,挣到他们所该得到的薪水。

对于佐治亚州的退休人员来说,社会保障福利,比如从IRA、401(K)和其他定额供款雇主提供的退休计划、私人养老金和公共养老金里提款都无需缴纳州税。

对于佐治亚州的企业来说,企业所得税和特许经营税会对企业造成不利影响,并阻碍创业就业机会。取消公司的这些税收将有助于扩大公司业务,并吸引更多的企业到佐治亚州创造新的就业机会。这也将使州政府停止为了招募公司落户佐治亚州而提供给公司的抵税或奖励。

三、控制开支

Kelly坚信有限的政府、税少、支出少才是智利政府的硬道理。为了提高政府服务的质量、效率,让政府更有效的为人民服务,Kelly一上任就会做好做出艰难决定的准备。

Kelly致力于在不增加税收的前提下,每年平衡预算,精简政府机构,避免浪费性支出,以及削减浪费性政府项目。

由于本州的经济一直在持续增长且表现良好,Kelly坚决反对新创政府项目,确保州的储备继续增加。Kelly支持减少税收,公司可以用减税省下的钱直接发放给员工涨工资,帮助各个家庭。

Kelly支持零基数预算,所有费用必须合理,机构内的每个职能都要根据其所需和成本进行分析,以根据其法定职责、目的和绩效评估其活动。

四、改善运输和减缓交通堵塞

佐治亚州的所有主要道路都通往亚特兰大,造成交通堵塞和拥堵。在全面考虑用什么方法可以改善运输,改变路径以及减少本地车流量时,我们要使用最具成本效益和最有效的方法,所有的选项都应该被考虑到。

Kelly致力于为交通措施提供足够的资金以改善拥堵状况,加强安全,建设新的公路项目,适应货运行车路线,以及维护道路和桥梁。

Kelly将会努力确保交通项目、资金、支出和进度的正常进行,并将改善交通运输并减少交通拥堵。

Kelly将会致力于改善交通状况,改变交通路径以避开车流,减少本地交通流量,包括:

  • 同步交通灯
  • 实施可互换的车道
  • 将所有大都市区的交通系统整合在一起
  • 在亚特兰大周边建立卡车运输线路
  • 建设公交专用道
  • 在北部建造连接I-75 / I-85的路
  • 建造外循环线路
  • 从田纳西州到佛罗里达州的27号公路扩建成四条车道
  • 从哥伦布(Columbus)到萨凡纳(Savannah)的16号公路扩建成四条车道
  • 为基础设施建设投资以防止桥梁倒塌和亚压弯高速路
  • 扩大GDOT的公司合作计划,通过利用私营企业的创新和资本,更好地分配有限的资源
  • 确保大型流动性投资可以按时和按预算完成(www.GAroads.org)
  • 支持GDOT的上学安全线路,让学生们可以安全地步行或骑车上学

Kelly不赞成扩建铁路经过Johns Creek,理由有三个:

  • 这将不会改善交通状况,减少交通流量或改变交通路线。
  • 成本高昂。建造铁路每英里成本为2.09亿美元,而建造州际高速路每英里成本为2000万美元,建造四条车道的高速路每英里成本为500万美元。
  • 它将破坏Johns Creek的形象。

五、扩大教育方面的选择

全家搬到Johns Creek的首要原因就是因为这里有全州最好的,评价最高的学校。

州长Deal曾任命Kelly为少年司法部理事会和学校理事会成员(Board of Directors and School Board for the Department of Juvenile Justice)。

Kelly还曾担任佐治亚大学系统招生顾问,为Gainesville州立大学招生。Kelly非常理解,为孩子们美好的未来做好准备,确保每个孩子,不管其背景,在任何情况下都能获得最好的教育是多么重要。

强大的教育体系可以带来强大的劳动力,从而形成良好的商业环境,带来强劲的经济发展。我们不能让学生们失望,我们必须满足当今的教学需求。

教育让所有人平等,但不是每个孩子都以同样的方式学习或通过同一个途径。教育不可能是一刀切的方式,所以父母必须有选择权来决定哪种方式对他们的孩子最好。更多的选择和更灵活会带给孩子们更好的结果。

Kelly致力于确保Johns Creek的学校仍然是本州最好的学校,她将不知疲倦地工作,以确保整个佐治亚州的学生都有机会接受良好的教育并能取得成功。

Kelly将致力于通过专注以下举措来改善并扩大教育机会:

K-12

  • 取消共同核心课程标准(Common Core)和不必要的法规、任务和官僚主义
  • 赋予当地学校理事会、教师和家长权力
  • 支持择校(school choice),以便父母为孩子的教育做出最好的决定
  • 完善教廷学校(homeschooling)的法律,允许学生进入学校参加体育课程,使用学校设施,因为他们的父母支付了相同的学校税,他们应该获得相同的服务
  • 创建教育储蓄账户,让父母来决定如何花费孩子的教育经费
  • 向更多的学生扩展特殊需求券(Special Needs Vouchers),以便每个孩子都能成功
  • 增加奖学金税收抵免(Scholarship Tax Credits),以提供给学生更多进入私立学校的机会
  • 专注于将监狱囚犯的的阅读水平提高到小学三年级的水平,这是监狱规划中使用的指标
  • 确保教室有最新的技术和创新方法,以扩大学习的环境
  • 制定项目让学生毕业时获得各种证书,以便企业可以立即录取有才能的员工,学生们才能获得有竞争力的薪金

中学后的教育(Post-Secondary)

  • 冻结学费
  • 保护HOPE奖学金,以确保其发放标准仅基于学生成绩
  • 继续为需求为导向的学生提供奖学金、助学金和贷款

我们将会继续为您报道有关Kelly Stewart的其他政见,请继续关注。

FIVE MEASURES I WILL WORK ON TO MAKE US SUCCESSFUL

FREEZING PROPERTY TAXES

Johns Creek’s homeowners need meaningful tax relief. As our next State Representative, Kelly believes in increasing the homestead exemption and will fight increases in property taxes by proposing legislation to keep Fulton County from levying any additional property taxes and freezing assessed property values. No one should be taxed out of their home and this will prevent the assessed value of homes from going up except when they’re sold or renovated so residents’ property taxes will stay the same each year.

ELIMINATING INCOME TAXES

Currently, there are nine states with no state income tax. Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming.

Honest Georgians are the only ones taxed on income. Not visitors, tourists, illegal aliens, or underground criminals.

Kelly is committed to reforming Georgia’s tax code by eliminating the state income tax and replacing it with a Georgia Fair Tax where everyone is treated fairly in paying taxes on broad-based consumption. There are no loopholes and there would be no audits.

For Georgia’s workers, this means an immediate pay raise by receiving more of what they earn.

For Georgia’s retirees, there would be no state tax on Social Security benefits, withdrawals from IRAs, 401(k)s, other defined-contribution employer retirement plans, private pensions, and public pensions.

For businesses in Georgia, the corporate income tax and franchise tax penalize businesses and hinder job creation.  Eliminating these taxes from companies would help expand their business growth as well as attract more businesses to Georgia creating new jobs. This would also eliminate the need to provide tax credits or incentives to recruit companies to come to Georgia.

CONTROLLING SPENDING

Kelly believes in limited government with less taxes and less spending. Kelly will be ready on day one to help make the tough decisions to provide high quality, efficient, and effective government services.

Kelly is committed to balancing the budget each year without raising taxes, streamlining state agencies, eliminating wasteful spending, and cutting wasteful government programs.

Because the state’s economy continues to grow and do well, Kelly does not support the creation of new government programs but will rather work to reduce taxes giving families an immediate pay raise and will ensure the state continues to build up its reserves.

Kelly supports zero-based budgeting where all expenses must be justified and every function within an agency is analyzed for its needs and costs to assess its activities against its statutory responsibilities, purpose, and performance.

IMPROVING TRANSPORTATION AND REDUCING TRAFFIC

All major roads in Georgia lead to Atlanta which creates gridlock and congestion. All options should be on the table when considering the most cost effective and efficient ways to improve transportation, reroute pass through traffic, and reduce local traffic.

Kelly is committed to funding transportation initiatives to improve congestion, enhance safety, construct new highway projects, accommodate the movement of freight traffic, and maintain our roads and bridges. Kelly will work to ensure transportation projects, funding, spending, and progress are on track and will improve transportation and reduce traffic.

Projects Kelly will work on to improve transportation, reroute pass through traffic, and reduce local traffic include:

  • Synchronizing traffic lights
  • Implementing interchangeable lanes
  • Consolidating all metro transportation systems under one umbrella

  • Creating a truck transit route around Atlanta

  • Constructing lanes for bus transit

  • Building a northern arc connecting I-75/I-85

  • Building an outer loop

  • Expanding Route 27 to four lanes from Tennessee to Florida

  • Expanding Route 16 to four lanes from Columbus to Savannah

  • Investing in infrastructure to prevent collapsing bridges and buckling highways

  • Expanding the Public Private Partnership program of GDOT to better allocate limited resources by leveraging the private sector innovation and capital

  • Ensuring Major Mobility Investments are completed on time and on budget (www.GAroads.org)

  • Supporting GDOT’s Safe Routes to School so children may walk or bike to school safely

Expanding rail through Johns Creek is not an option Kelly will support for three reasons.

  1. It will not improve transportation, reduce traffic, or reroute traffic.
  2. It is cost prohibitive. The per mile cost to construct rail is $209 million versus the $20 million per mile cost to construct an interstate highway or $5 million per mile to construct a four-lane highway.
  3. It will devastate the character of Johns Creek.

EXPANDING EDUCATIONAL CHOICES

The number one reason families move to Johns Creek is because the schools are among the best, top-rated schools in the state.

Kelly was appointed by Governor Deal to serve on the Board of Directors and School Board for the Department of Juvenile Justice. Kelly also served as an Admissions Counselor in the University System of Georgia recruiting students to Gainesville State College. Kelly understands firsthand what it means to make sure every child from every background, regardless of circumstances has access to the best education in order to prepare them for a bright future.

A strong education system leads to a strong workforce which leads to a great business environment which leads to a strong economy. We cannot ever afford to fail our students and must meet the needs of today’s classroom.

Education is the great equalizer but not every child learns the same way or takes the same path. Education can’t be a one-size fits all so parents must have every option available to decide what is best for their child. More options and more flexibility mean better results for children.

Kelly is dedicated and committed to making sure schools in Johns Creek remain the best in the state and will work tirelessly to make sure students throughout Georgia have every opportunity to a great education and to be successful.

Kelly will work to improve and expand educational opportunities by focusing on these initiatives:

K-12

  • Eliminating Common Core, needless regulations, mandates, and bureaucracy

  • Empowering local school boards, teachers, and parents

  • Supporting school choice so parents make the best decision for their child’s education

  • Refining homeschooling laws to allow students access to school athletic programs and facilities as their parents pay the same school taxes and should receive the same services

  • Creating Education Savings Accounts to let parents determine how their child’s education dollars should be spent

  • Expanding Special Needs Vouchers to more students so every child can succeed

  • Increasing Scholarship Tax Credits to provide greater access to private schools

  • Focusing on improving third grade reading levels which is an indicator used in prison planning

  • Ensuring classrooms have the newest technologies and innovations to expand the learning environment

  • Developing programs where students graduate with certifications, so businesses have an immediate, talented pool of workers earning competitive wages

Post-Secondary

  • Freezing tuition rates

  • Protecting the HOPE Scholarship to ensure it is based on merit ONLY

  • Continuing to provide scholarships, grants, and loans for needs-based students
