Londo's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Repairs and maintenance of Michigan’s transportation infrastructure is my number one priority. I do not support new or additional taxes on Michigan residents for road repairs and maintenance; instead, I support using alternative revenue sources of revenue and for our state to rethink the current allocation of resources. We should closely examine the state budget and reallocate resources from low priority programs to help fund road projects. Currently, a large portion of Michigan’s road funding comes from taxes paid at the gas pump. As vehicles become more fuel-efficient and as more vehicles are being powered by batteries and natural gas, it is important that we find a way to make sure owners of these vehicles are paying their fair share toward the maintaining and repairing the roads.
JOBS IN MICHIGAN
Michigan needs to continue creating a business friendly environment which incentivizes businesses to grow and create jobs. Our state government should continually work to make a favorable economic climate for businesses to grow and prosper. Attracting new businesses to Michigan and making it easier for existing businesses to grow is the most surefire way to create new jobs. Not only do unnecessary compliance requirements and additional taxes keep businesses from investing in the Michigan workforce, they are also costly to oversee and implement.
I support the parents’ rights to educate their children in accordance with their individual and family values. Common core curriculums and mandated performance testing are eroding local control and a teacher’s ability to adapt their teaching according to student needs. There are many rewarding careers which do not require a four-year college degree. I strongly support vocational education programs in the skilled trades, and would support offering additional flexibility in student schedules to accommodate these programs.
THE SECOND AMENDMENT
As an avid sportsman, I believe individuals should be allowed to exercise their Second Amendment right to own and transport firearms for hunting and personal protection. I am opposed to state and local government regulations and controls on gun owners when they conflict with the rights given by the Second Amendment.
