House opponent wants to put end to Reis, tax increases
Small-business owner and farmer Darren Bailey will challenge Rep. David Reis (R-Ste. Marie) for the 109th House District, running on an anti-tax increase platform, according to a press release.
“Tax and Spend Republicans are at it again,” Bailey said in the release. “Hiking our taxes while our families, farms, and businesses are suffering. We deserve a State Representative with the courage and conviction to fight for our values. We have been betrayed for long enough."
Bailey owns Bailey Family Farms in Farina and has served on the North Clay Unit 25 Board of Education in Louisville for 17 years, holding the presidency for 12 years. In the release, he noted that his family’s priorities are faith, family and farming, and declared himself a committed Christian. Bailey is against tax increases and for pro-business reforms. He is also pro-life and supports the Second Amendment.
In the press release, Bailey called out Reis for siding with Democrats in support of a 32 percent income tax increase.
“Families are going to have to do with less because career politicians want more of our hard-earned money to spend,” Bailey said in the release. “We should not have to pay the price for the mistakes career politicians have made. We deserve better. Voters in the 109th District can count on me to stand up for the values we all share.”
