Chris Countryman on Budget & Economy



Prepare financially for new, or expanding, state programs

In recent years, Alabama has gained a tarnished image in the eyes of the nation, as well as the citizens within the state. Gone are the memories of songs that flaunt the beauty of the our state. These are now replaced with vivid reminders that our current state administration has abused their power and authority for personal gain, advancement of propaganda, and irresponsible financial decisions that directly affect each and every tax paying citizen. Because of this many citizens have questioned whether or not Alabama can once again become a state of progress, or if it is doomed to continue impacting citizens in a negative way, and eventually leading to the complete bankruptcy of the state. Because of these real and valid concerns, Christopher A. Countryman, is committed to balancing the state budget, creating a surplus in the states general fund, adequately funding current programs, and preparing financially for new, or expanding, state programs.
