Plaunt's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Creating a Strong Economy and Great Jobs
- Excerpt: "Close the skills gap. The Green Bay area has always been a manufacturing community. Our employers need employees with the proper education to operate and maintain the machinery which drives our manufacturing business. We must invest in more programs which teach these technical skills and increase awareness of placement programs for these students so they can find employment immediately upon graduation. By creating more skilled grads, our local manufacturers will be able to invest and grow along with the community."
Reduce Government Spending
- Excerpt: "Reduce spending in corrections and law enforcement through sentencing reform. By decreasing terms of incarceration of non-violent drug offenders and increasing parole or probation as well as fines, we can reduce the cost of our correction system. Currently Wisconsin has close to 20,000 inmates and spends roughly $38,000.00 per year per inmate. With nearly 25% of our prison population incarcerate for non-violent offenses, the potential savings to the state could be well over $100 million dollars."
Educating Our Young Generation
- Excerpt: "Curriculum Reform. Our schools have been increasingly focused on testing, so much so that we have neglected teaching students the basic life skills necessary for our children to succeed as they become adults. Schools should be required to teach basic skills such as managing debt, different types of mortgages, investments, different types insurance policies, and so on. This will give students the knowledge they need to enter into the world and become independent members of society."
Preserving Our Environment
- Excerpt: "Renewable energy. As we move into the future and fossil fuels continues to become more scarce, we need to ensure our communities will have a reliable source of energy. By investing in renewable energy, we will create jobs both in the manufacturing of and servicing of renewable energy products. This will also allows up to develop an infrastructure necessary to propel us into the future."
Protecting the Constitutional Rights of All
- Excerpt: "Gun rights. As an avid hunter and shooter, I support the right of Wisconsinite's to keep and bear arms. I would not support any legislation which infringes on that right."
