Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hodges' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "While the government cannot create private sector jobs, it certainly can create an environment where entrepreneurs and businesses are able to succeed. Arkansas must be competitive with other states, especially its neighbors, in fostering innovation and getting government out of the way."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Every Arkansas child deserves a quality education, and while strong public schools are the backbone of our state’s education system, no child should be forced into a failing school simply because of his or her zip code."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "Obamacare is wrong for the country and for Arkansas. It is job-killing, budget-busting legislation that puts the government in control of 1/6 of our economy. The state Medicaid program already accounts for 22% of the entire state budget at almost $4.5 billion."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Arkansas’s tax structure is not competitive with our neighbors and many other states. The income tax code is in desperate need of reform; it has seen little change since 1971. We can lower taxes responsibly to bring relief to working families who have seen their federal taxes increase under President Obama."

Good Government

  • Excerpt: "As your state representative, I will follow the “Walmart Rule,” meaning I will accept no gifts or favors from lobbyists that are not available to the general public. I support term limits for state officials, as well as a two year “cooling off period” before legislators can become lobbyists."
