Stitt responds to Edmondson's call for more tax hikes


STITT RESPONDS TO EDMONDSON’S CALL FOR MORE TAX INCREASES

TULSA, Okla. (Sept. 6, 2018) – Kevin Stitt, Republican candidate for governor, issued a statement today to respond to former Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson’s press conference calling for more tax increases on hardworking Oklahomans:

“Since day one, I have called for teachers to be paid competitive wages, a key requirement for Oklahoma to become Top Ten in education. Over the past year, our state revenue has grown by more than $1 billion, and our economy is making a comeback. In the next few weeks, we will also begin to see the impact from tax increases passed earlier this year. Yet, my opponent is already calling for even more taxes on hardworking Oklahomans. In a Stitt administration, we will make it a priority to invest more in education, but it starts by assessing new state revenue at hand, diversifying our economy, and delivering accountability across our state budget.”
