Marty describes himself as a conservative progressive:
"I am conservative; frugal with money, personally and in
government. I support conservation of natural resources and the environment. Conservative
values -- honesty, fairness, and respect are important to me. I work to promote
responsibility in government, business, and families.
I am progressive; forward-looking with a vision for a better future. By
investing in the health, nutrition and education of young children, we prevent problems
before they start -- an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
