Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Aspen's campaign website highlights the following issues:[1]

Putting Kids First

  • Excerpt: "The promise of a good education shouldn't depend on income or where you live. I will consider all options to improve our education system, and oppose special interests that put adults before kids. That means encouraging innovation, providing incentives for top teachers in challenged schools, and giving parents more choices in where they send their kids."

Taking Action Against Violent Crime

  • Excerpt: "Escalating violence plagues our city. Violent criminals should not receive shortened sentences. It's time for the Legislature to act. I will work to repeal Nebraska's misguided "good time" law for violent offenders, reform how we treat non-violent offenders, and push for stiffer sentences to target gangs."

Lower Taxes and a Level Playing Field

  • Excerpt: "Our tax system is riddled with loopholes and exemptions for corporations and special interests. Lower taxes and a level playing field will let you keep more of your own money while unleashing our greatest creative force- our local businesses and entrepreneurs."

Every Vote on Facebook

  • Excerpt: "For too long, the people's business has been done in hallways and backrooms. As your senator, I pledge to post on Facebook every single vote I take, and my reason why. Agree or disagree, I'll always be accountable to you."
