Campaign themes


Cox listed the following issues on his campaign website:[3]

  • Taxes
Excerpt: "I believe that the current flat tax is fair and better than a progressive tax."
  • Pension reform
Excerpt: "I believe the recent law passed as pension reform is unconstitutional."
  • Gun control
Excerpt: " I believe the right of self-protection is a God given right, not a right given to us by our government. We should not have to pay a fee to exercise our 2nd amendment rights. As citizens we should have the right of self-protection whether we are in our homes, walking down the street or driving our car down the street."
  • Term limits
Excerpt: "Term limits should be for all."
