Jones' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Taxes & Spending
At a time of economic struggle for so many families, the State’s actions are reckless and put our entire economy at risk.
As your next State Senator, I will vote against increased spending and higher taxes.
Some candidates and elected officials believe that we should tax our way out of economic trouble. Unfortunately, this is not supported in fact or by history. The higher the level of taxation correlates directly to fewer and fewer private sector jobs.
For Southern Maryland to flourish, we need to build our private sector job base and to do this, we need to keep taxes and spending low and make it easy for employers to locate here and grow.
As a mother of two school-age children, I can tell you firsthand that no two children learn the same way. Accordingly, I am also a big supporter giving parents as many options as possible on how to educate their children. In addition to supporting our public schools, I support magnet schools, charter schools, private schools and homeschooling.
Notwithstanding my support for public schools, I absolutely do not support the Common Core curriculum that is now being forced upon our schools by the State of Maryland. The Common Core treats every student the same and will eventually be used as a predictive tool to select which students can attend college and which cannot, as is already being done in Europe.
As State Senator, I will do all that I can at the State level to give our local school board and our teachers (with consultation and support from the parents) the freedom to educate our children in a way that they believe is best — not the state and not the federal government.
As State Senator, I will vote in a manner that is consistent with the United States Constitution.
Chesapeake Bay & the Farming & Fishing Community
Yet, the liberals in Annapolis continue to pass laws and regulations restricting land use, fishing, farming, and manufacturing in a “feel good” attempt to clean up the Bay. Just last year, the State passed a law to tax the amount of rain that falls on your property … because somehow the money generated from this new tax will magically clean up the Bay.
It is a scientific fact that the source of pollution in the Bay is from runoff and pollution that enters the Susquehanna River from mostly Pennsylvania. It will take a concerted effort by our Legislature, our Governor and our federal elected officeholders to get the seven states in the Chesapeake Bay watershed to reduce pollution in order to clean up the Bay.
As State Senator, I will work to stop Chesapeake Bay pollution at the source (where the pollution enters the watershed — not hundreds of miles downriver.
