Today is April 15.  Are Your Tax Dollars Safe with “Tax-Hikin’ Rick Bryan?”


Ronald Reagan famously quipped that, “Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the Democrats believe every day is April 15.” 

In honoring the president’s joke, Jonathan Dever, demonstrating that he is the true fiscal conservative in the race, signed the Americans for Tax Reform Pledge to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

As a small businessman, Jonathan Dever understands the importance of staying within budget and funding priorities first. 

Dever said, “I am proud to add my name to the list of candidates and elected officials at both the state and federal level who have pledged to stop the tax and spend policies that hurt the middle class.  I will go to Columbus and fight every day to make sure that we do not spend one penny more than needed.  Government is meant to help folks, not hurt them.”

Jonathan Dever’s opponent in the Ohio House Race has fiscal beliefs that are closer to those of Democrats than his own party.

Since announcing his run for the statehouse, Rick Bryan has campaigned as a fiscal conservative, but his record on Blue Ash City Council reflects a progressive fiscal record, earning him the long-standing moniker “Tax-Hikin’ Rick Bryan.”

On top of his profligate spending for projects like a $75 million public park, Rick Bryan voted for an earnings tax increase of a whopping 25%

The working class folks and our seniors in the 28th House District literally cannot afford to send another Progressive tax and spender to Columbus.

“I will work to shrink our State government and return control to the local level.  Our working families deserve to have a candidate that will fight against over taxation and out of control spending.  I call on my opponents to follow suit, and sign the pledge.”
