Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Callison's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Conservative Leadership

  • Excerpt: "Texas faces complex challenges that simple rhetoric won’t fix. We need a serious, conservative leader willing to tackle our biggest health care, budget, education and water issues while preserving our shared conservative values. Glenn will protect us from the dangers of tax increases, unnecessary regulations and job-killing federal programs, like Obamacare."

Strong Economy

  • Excerpt: "Glenn will work to ensure our region continues to create jobs and remains a great place to live and raise a family, while adhering to fiscally conservative policies to keep taxes low."

Community Servant

  • Excerpt: "For the last 25 years, Glenn has immersed himself in the important local issues that affect our community and as our state representative, Glenn will continue to look out for us."

Great Schools

  • Excerpt: "Giving more local control to our teachers and parents in educating our children is the best model for improving our education system."

Solve Transportation

  • Excerpt: "Transparent budgeting, stopping diversions and by prioritizing our spending, we can solve our transportation problem with no new taxes on hard-working Texans."

Defend the Border

  • Excerpt: "If the federal government refuses to defend our border, Texas must pick up the slack. Glenn believes we must truly secure our borders, hold employers responsible for knowingly hiring illegal immigrants, and opposes the policy of ‘sanctuary cities’."

Faith and Family Values

  • Excerpt: "Glenn is 100% Pro-life. He believes life begins at conception and we must do everything we can to protect those who cannot protect themselves. He believes the life of an unborn child is precious and innocent and that everyone deserves a chance to fulfill God’s plan."

Protect our Water

  • Excerpt: "With our population set to double by 2050, Glenn will take a proactive approach and move quickly to solve this problem. He will ensure Texas invests in the crucial water conservation and infrastructure projects we need - without raising your taxes."

Balance Budget

  • Excerpt: "Glenn knows that a lean and efficient government is the least intrusive and most productive."
