Lollar Platform Centers on Cutting Taxes

Posted: Updated:

HUNTINGTOWN, Md. (AP)- For Charles Lollar, the best thing the next governor of Maryland can do is cut taxes to make the state friendly for businesses and promote job growth. Nearly everything else is secondary to the Charles County businessman and Marine reservist who's running in the GOP primary for governor, besides a major reorganization of the state's executive branch that he contends will make state government more efficient. The tea party Republican says the large number of revenue hikes in recent years present too great a threat to the health of the state.

The Charles County businessman isn't afraid to take on a tough campaign challenge. In 2010, Lollar ran against Rep. Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Lollar lost with 35 percent of the vote.
