Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Gaither's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Safety
Excerpt: "The first priority of government at all levels should be to the safety of its citizens. This means we need to equip, train and back our firefighters, emergency medical providers, and law enforcement officers."
  • Getting People Back to Work
Excerpt: "The message coming from the governors office is that two-thirds of all new jobs will come from small business and the creation of new small businesses. ...These businesses need their hard earned dollars to grow and create the new jobs we so desperately need. Tax cuts equal economic growth and without economic growth we are simply broke."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Our education system takes 25 percent of our budget. For that kind of money we should not have a third of our students failing to graduate. ...Reading, writing, and math are the keys to a good education. We need to refocus on academics."
