Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Svolos's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Reintroduce the elimination of second grade testing. This will not lower accountability as some claim. It will save money in times when resources are scarce. Statistically the comparison between second and third grade testing are not valid or reliable."
  • Immigration reform
Excerpt: "I have signed an agreement with a Policy Statement on Immigration reform proposed by the Orange County Lincoln Club. It is a well thought out plan and I will advocate for its introduction and passage."
  • Women's Issues-
Excerpt: "Fight violence against women and continue to protect regulations that ensure equal pay for equal work. Balance issues of religious freedom and access to birth control so that one civil liberty does not step on the other."
  • Business growth
Excerpt: "Streamline requirements, reduce paperwork and lessen costs for business who want to build and expand in this state to get the economy rolling again. Once the facilities are built, they will generate revenue and more than offset the lost costs on the front end."
  • Budget
Excerpt: "Create a budget that reduces the deficit. In 11 years it has grown 61.3%. This will take tough decisions from everyone but a credit crisis doesn't help anyone."
  • Investigate and eliminate fraud
Excerpt: "Increase fraud investigators in all areas of government spending. Require proof to eliminate false accusations and continually monitor to make sure we are eliminating more fraud than the cost of the investigators."
