We’ve heard a lot of talk about the state debt this election — of course Duane Davidson done more than talk about cutting debt, He’s actually done it. By more than 50% in fact.
While Benton County Treasurer, Duane helped cut the county’s General Obligation Debt from $33 Million to $15 Million, and led the effort to earn the county a higher bond rating — this alone saved millions in interest. Duane also worked with the county’s commissioners to adopt fiscally conservative budgets. The results were dramatic.
There’s a reason why being a county treasurer is the best experience for being state treasurer, Duane gets to run on actual accomplishments, not just promises.
Duane’s opponent is right to talk about cutting debt, and Duane is the person to actually do it.
