We conclude our series today on the response from fellow candidates regarding Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Ron Micheli's criticism of the budgeting process throughout the Freudenthal years. Candidate Colin Simpson feels it's unfair to be over critical of the budget increases while Governor Freudenthal has been in office.
Simpson says that the State has invested a lot in capital construction as well.
Micheli has been on record for criticizing the increases in State spending while Freudenthal has been in office. While every candidate had their own take on the issue, none of them would agreed with Micheli and his criticisms of the budgeting process.
