|Former candidate for|
|Texas House of Representatives, District 132|
Hodge's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Ann will fight to increase local control in education, ensuring that more power rests with local parents and teachers, and less with government bureaucrats. She will work with educators, parents and colleagues in the legislature to restore sanity to the state’s testing standards. And she will support expansion of charter schools and vocational programs, so that every child is ready for college or a career after graduation."
- Excerpt: "She believes that providing infrastructure – like roads, water and electricity – is one of government’s core responsibilities. To keep our economy strong and enhance our quality of life, Ann will support wise investments in infrastructure that do not leave future generations under mountains of debt."
- Excerpt: "When it comes to job creation, she knows that government’s role is to create an environment where employers are free to flourish – then get out of the way. Ann will go to Austin to fight over-regulation of small businesses, keep taxes low and spending under control, and stop lawsuit abuse."
Fiscal Responsibility and Taxes
- Excerpt: "Ann will fight to keep taxes low so that Texas remains the nation’s top state for job creation. She will work to keep spending under control, so you can invest more in your family and less in government. And she will support greater Truth in Budgeting so that taxes levied for a specific purpose are spent as promised, or returned to taxpayers."
