Burckart's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Jobs, Jobs and Good Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Make Arkansas more competitive for large and small businesses to bring jobs to Arkansas from abroad and from other states. Streamline processes and checklist at the state and local level for economic incentives. Provide a favorable environment for good jobs to be created."

Job training and certifications

Young adult job training

  • Excerpt: "While many adults are looking for Job training so our many of our young adults that are still in high school. Being able to provide the same job trailing in many of the determined programs for some of our high school students not only seems prudent but is our duty."

Education Choice

  • Excerpt: "I am in favor of school choice, charter schools and other flexible means to give all our kids the tools to be successful. I prefer it be kids choice, as one said to me, than the federal choice.

Fiscal Conservative
