Balmanno's campaign website highlights the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Too many legislators use their position to advance their business, their trade or that of one of their cronies. Government service should not be about personal enrichment or aggrandizement. Politicians in the United States should not be like third-world politicians. Government service is about service to the people, not self-service."
- Excerpt: "Too often, legislators seek to avoid difficult budget decisions. It is not reasonable to earmark income in future years for specific projects. If those projects are important in future years the legislators will fund them at that time. As any household knows, when you automatically tie too many payments to specific categories, you lose flexibility and the ability to react to needs in the future. The ideological position of never increasing revenues for any reason is harmful to our state; so is using particular streams of money for specific projects, especially if the income stream is not related in any way to that project. We need to think rationally about the future and adapt to changing times."
- Excerpt: "Too many of our political leaders often show contempt and disrespect and think it acceptable to defame our national government. It is not. We are United States citizens. The federal government is not the enemy. Reasonable people can disagree over policies without being unreasonable. Much of the rhetoric from some of our politicians is too divisive and unproductive. Those who settled Utah worked too hard for statehood for today’s opportunistic politicians to speak as if they favor disunity of the union. As Utahans, we, of all people, should build up the union."
- Excerpt: "We need legislators who are pragmatic and reasonable. Legislation should be written to address problems after the problems are identified, after the issues are studied, and solutions are developed to deal with those problems. Identify, study, solve. Issues are not problems simply because of anecdotal evidence or because special interests clamor. Solutions should be honest resolutions of real problems, not skewed for special interest, to benefit a particular business, or for individual gain."
