Vickers' website highlights the following campaign themes:
Fighting for Local Control
- Excerpt: "I have, and always will, opposed any federally created standard or curriculum being thrust upon our children in any manner, especially in the classroom. I will not stand for the federal government attempting to take away the authority that is constitutionally vested in our duly elected local and state school boards. "
- Excerpt: "In the six years I have been in the legislature I have sponsored 71 bills. But it’s not just about sponsoring legislation it’s about passing it! I have passed 89% of the bills I have sponsored on important issues like public lands, water, wildland fire, small business, workers compensation insurance, tax issues, election law, insurance and County Sheriff issues."
Economic Vitality and Lower Taxes
- Excerpt: "The only way we can solve the long term funding issues in our state is to grow the economic activity and increase jobs. More taxes will never be the answer."
- Excerpt: "I am a firm believer that those who use the lands as a resource are the best stewards; whether it be the ranchers and farmers, the sportsmen, the energy producers, etc. These people appreciate the fact that they can’t just use up the resource and throw it away. They have to preserve the lands in order to use it over and over again for our benefit."
Involving You in the Process
- Excerpt: "As your legislator, I have made it my top priority to be open and accessible to you. My constituents and our area are the only special interests I have, and I am committed to earning your continued trust through hard work, honesty and transparency."
