Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Ciamarra's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • "Education and healthcare decisions are best made locally by individuals in the community. I oppose the federal Affordable Care Act’s integration of multiple federal departments intruding into the lives of innocent citizens requiring them to purchase a product or be subject to fines and imprisonment is an overstepping of power. I am opposed to the so called “common core” curriculum that will usurp our local board of education’s authority."
  • "Shelby County is blessed with Oak Mountain state park and I will support maintaining this natural resource with dignity for the inhabitants of the preserve as well as those who visit and have the opportunity to enjoy nature outdoors."
  • "Common sense and moral values reveal freedoms come from the natural law of God NOT the government. What the government gives it can take away, however our human rights and dignity of being human can never be taken away. I will stand for freedom of conscience and religious freedom for all."
  • "People are more important than things – the wealth of our state is in our greatest resource, the human beings who are citizens of the Great State of Alabama. I will defend innocent human life from conception through a natural death. I agree with Thomas Jefferson who stated 'The care of human life and not its destruction is the first and only objective of good government.'"
  • "Limited government is best for economic growth and development. Taxation, fees, license fees, service fees, have become steadily growing heavy burdens on families, small businesses owners and those wishing to begin a business. I am in favor of lower taxes."
  • "Education and healthcare decisions are best made locally by individuals in the community. I oppose the federal Affordable Care Act’s integration of multiple federal departments intruding into the lives of innocent citizens requiring them to purchase a product or be subject to fines and imprisonment is an overstepping of power. I am opposed to the so called “common core” curriculum that will usurp our local board of education’s authority."
  • "I support the right to own a gun to protect ones self, ones family, and property."

Doug Clark, Arnold Mooney, Amie Beth Shaver, Cheryl Ciamarra, John Bahakel, Gina McDonald, and Don Murphy faced off in the Republican primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Mooney and Shaver - met in a runoff election, which Mooney won.[4] Mooney is unchallenged in the general election.[5][6][7][8]
