Campaign themes

The following are four issues highlighted by Loudon on her campaign website."[7]

  • Jobs

Excerpt: "Spending taxpayer dollars on infrastructure is fine; however, it cannot be our primary means of job creation as these jobs are temporary. Faith believes the best way to go about this is to introduce and pass business-friendly legislation that will keep jobs from going overseas."[8]

  • Taxes and Spending

Excerpt: "Our policymakers should employ the same strategies that Americans would use at home when faced with similar issues."[9]

  • Education

Excerpt: "Faith believes that the responsibilities of education and the choices associated with them should rest with the families directly impacted by schools. This means never forcing children to attend failing schools. We should return federal funds to the state and local levels where they can help our children, and decisions can be made by local communities."[10]

  • Immigration

Excerpt: "Illegal immigration takes jobs away from people who are here legally. Granting citizenship to illegal immigrants encourages people to break the rules and is unfair and insulting to all the immigrants who followed the rules."[11]

Awards

  • Republican Woman of the Year for the State of Maryland, 2010
  • Republican Woman of the Year for Anne Arundel County, MD (2008)
  • Central Committee’s Unsung Hero Award (2007, 2009 and 2010)
