Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Kaspereit lists fiscal responsibility, jobs, education and taxes as his key campaign issues.[2]

2010

The issue of greatest importance to Kaspereit is education. With himself, and many friends and family members, being passionately involved in education, Kaspereit believes he has the experience and connections to pursue legislation that will benefit the classroom education our students receive. Oklahoma education has suffered greatly with the recent economic recession and Kaspereit feels that, by re-prioritizing and/or easing many of the legislative mandates placed on schools, Oklahomans can see schools be effective and eventually excel once financial support can again increase.

Another area Kaspereit thinks should be receiving more attention is small business. Believing small and medium size business to be a crucial part of economic recovery, Kaspereit would like to see legislation that gives small business a boost. Tax breaks, for one, are something Kaspereit believes can give small business the leg up they need to not only get started, but survive in a business world flooded with large corporations. Kaspereit firmly believes that job growth and economic stability will be founded on small and medium businesses, and that Oklahoma can make sure those opportunities will exist.

Kaspereit classifies himself as a "Conservative Republican, Devoted Christian, Impassioned Educator, & a Fresh Voice."
