John Oxendine has filed the paper to accept contributions for a potential run for Governor in 2010:
Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine filed his paperwork Wednesday to begin raising money to run for governor in 2010. The Republican made clear he plans to campaign on tax cuts.
“As a Georgia taxpayer, I am disappointed the tax breaks we were all promised were not passed by the General Assembly,” Oxendine said in a press release. “On April 30, I, as so many of my fellow Georgians do year after year, will be paying the annual birthday ad-valorem tax on my automobile.
“I would hope the governor and the Legislature could also help the taxpayer by agreeing on the tax breaks which have been proposed.”
Should we take that comment about the tax breaks to mean the he supported the Speaker’s proposal over the more economically beneficial cut in the income tax?
