Issues

Campaign themes

2013

Seyler's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[4]

  • Abortion
Excerpt: "I feel Abortion is a matter that should be left to a woman and her conscience."
  • Anonymous Committees
Excerpt: "To eliminate Anonymous Committees, we need to elect administrators who can say 'NO' to the special interest groups that promote the special projects costing taxpayers so much money. If elected, I will do everything in my ability to prevent a need to raise taxes to pay for interest on debt refinancing for special interest projects we don't need."
  • Energy Crisis
Excerpt: "We need to reduce our demand for foreign oil by developing new domestic supplies for energy."
  • Flat Income Tax
Excerpt: "For a flat tax to work there need to be several factors in place at the same time. We need to be fair to the tax payers and we also need to be fair to the needs of the State of New Jersey. "Facilitate progress in ways that benefit everyone."
  • Gun Control
Excerpt: "In my opinion, our Second Amendment rights prevent totalitarian national movements."
  • Lost Cost Housing
Excerpt: "The only solution is for government to take a greater responsibility for our citizen's housing needs."
  • Medical Marijuana
Excerpt: "In 2007, I went on the record offering to give voters a chance to vote for or against legalization of Marijuana. Jon Corzine, the New Jersey Assembly and Senate beat me to it, they legalized Medicinal Marijuana."
  • Online Pornography
Excerpt: "Same as the Movie Industry, Websites could be reviewed and if necessary, stamped with an .xcom content rating. Pornography Websites that attempt to sneak past the .XCOM rating with legitimate sounding .COM names could simply be fined or deactivated."
  • Route 29 Extension
Excerpt: "Completion of this section of Route 29 will connect Milford, New Jersey to Riegelsville, New Jersey and create a scenic route along that section of the Delaware River. New housing will be introduced and new manufacturing firms will be able to locate to this area. More jobs, more housing, more tax income for the State. We used to call that "PROGRESS." Remember my objective, facilitate progress in ways that benefit all residents."
  • Senior Freedom
Excerpt: "With Senior Freedom, the Senior's property tax will be decreased. With my plan, a Senior or a qualified disabled person receives a reduction for their present Real Estate assessment for 1,000 square feet of housing area."
  • Alternative Transportation
Excerpt: "Flemington, Phillipsburg, Somerville and Trenton, New Jersey could be linked together with old train excursions. Just like the good old days, isn't that what it's all about? Let's not spend another $300,000. on a study, let's do it!"

2011

In 2011, Seyler stated:

"The purpose of Government is to facilitate progress in ways that benefit everyone. Democrats and Republicans are responsible for our skyrocketing costs. Conditions in New Jersey will not improve unless we elect candidates who will work to reduce the cost of Government."
