Victor Mitchell on Tax Reform
Not one darn penny for additional taxes
Mitchell says,"I love TABOR," referring to the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights, a favorite state constitutional amendment of conservatives that liberals say hurts funding for schools, transportation and other public
needs. "I was supportive of TABOR from the get-go and still am. I don't believe we should be asking for one darn penny from any citizen of our state of additional taxes, not one penny."

No tax increases, not even to boost education spending
The 51-year-old from Castle Rock served one two-year term in the state House in 2007 and led a successful effort to defeat a 2011 ballot measure to increase taxes to boost education spending. Instead of political experience, Mitchell's campaign is
emphasizing his career as an entrepreneur who turned around failing businesses.
"I think people really want an outsider, somebody that knows how to fix things and problem solve in a meaningful way," Mitchell said.
