Astrup Running for Tax Commissioner

Posted: Updated:

Rauschenberger is not the only one seeking the tax commissioner seat, Jason Astrup is seeking the Democratic endorsement. Astrup is an attorney who specializes in business and tax law. He says after 18 years of one party control in the tax department, it's time for change.

"I'm troubled that the last two tax commissioners have been appointed by the governor because their predecessors left in the middle of their elected term to become high priced lobbyists," says Astrup. "This trend should trouble all taxpayers because it calls into question the independence of the office of tax commissioner. It's time to stop the revolving door of political appointees. If you're elected by the people to do the job then you owe it to them to serve out your term."
