Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hooten's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Get the basics right – then get out of the way

  • Excerpt: "Government should focus on core functions, like schools, roads and public safety, and do them very well. Beyond that, government has grown far too large and intrusive in our daily lives."

Get the right return for taxpayers– stop wasting money

  • Excerpt: "State government has hundreds of agencies, boards and commissions, many of them overlapping and poorly managed. We need leaders with the experience to make tough choices, and the commitment to see them through. We must get the bureaucrats under control."

Get on the right side for business – help, don’t hurt

  • Excerpt: "Our legal, tax and regulatory environment should foster economic growth. Instead, we drown entrepreneurs in mountains of paper work, taxes and regulations."

Protect our Oklahoma values – they’re right for our families and our community

  • Excerpt: "Many things make Oklahoma special, but our values set us apart. From a strong work ethic, to our neighborly spirit and appreciation for family and Christian faith, there’s no better place to live, work and raise a family. In every action it takes, our state government should reflect this unique heritage."
