"Pakistan needs to have decentralisation and a good local government system."
"People just want to hear some common sense... and I bring to bear the experience in local government and state government and national government - I was the first woman in history on the Senate Finance Committee - not to mention the diplomatic international experience."
"There's much more we can be doing in Parliament, we could be giving more power back to people at local government level, through local referendums."
"And I just think that we're at a point in our economic life here in our state - and - and, candidly, across the country, where increased taxes is just the wrong way to go. The people of our state are not convinced that state government, county government, local government has done all they can with the money we already give them, rather than the money that we have before."
