Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Clemmons's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Education is the key to our future. If we fail to understand the importance of education in a global economy, if we do not fund education at much higher levels and return control to our educators, we leave our children and grandchildren without a future."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "We will meet the challenge of creating more and better jobs in our area by harnessing our considerable assets. Our greatest strengths include our people, rivers, streams, mountains, plants and wildlife, TVA, and proximity to Huntsville and Chattanooga. The diversity of Northeast Alabama makes it unique in our state, maybe even the nation. By highlighting our natural, human, and industrial/business resources, we can bring in established companies from outside of the state and encourage local residents to build new businesses."
  • Leadership
Excerpt: "Having served under great leadership in the USMC, in Vietnam, and having founded and built a business to over 400 people in seven countries, I have developed the leadership skills that will allow us to establish a better future for our District."
  • District 8
Excerpt: "We need a multifaceted approach to Economic Development that is built around attracting a diverse set of industries. This will ensure that we build an economy that can weather change in fluctuating times. Our key resources in Senate District 8 are our people, rivers, streams, mountains, plant and animal species, TVA, and proximity to Huntsville and Chattanooga. I advocate a plan that includes bringing manufacturing, agriculture, tourist industry, high technology (intellect-based jobs), and retirement communities to our area."
