Campaign themes

2012

Spencer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Spending

  • Excerpt: "Jefferson City needs to respect our citizen’s tax dollars. I will follow the tax payer’s money to make sure that waste and unnecessary spending is cut, to live within our means as we either maintain or lower our level of taxation, while at the same time improving services and increasing the quality of life for all citizens."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I will work to provide adequate funding for our schools. We have all seen the chilling effect the economy can have on our communities. We can invest in education, or we can invest in social programs and prisons. It isn’t just children that require educating, and it isn’t just money that needs to be invested in education."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "My father owned and operated a small construction company. Through his teachings, I have developed an understanding of what business owners need from policy makers in order to establish and grow their organizations. We need policies that create prosperity instead of policies that create problems."

Pro-Life

  • Excerpt: "I have always believed that life begins at conception and will properly advocate for the rights of the unborn in Jefferson City. We must protect and provide security for all its citizens."

Controversies

St. Charles County Republican caucus

The March 17, 2012 St. Charles County Republican caucus to award 147 Presidential delegates ended without any awarded after controversy arose due to the announced rules, which included a ban on videotaping.[9] According to Bryce Steinhoff, a coordinator for the Ron Paul campaign, Spencer, who was chair of the local caucus subcommittee, told Steinhoff he would challenge the delegation if delegates were not distributed proportionately.[10] When the caucus reconvened April 10 they backed Paul.[11]
