Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Stofferahn's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "While citizens of District 13 are thankful for these efforts, the remaining truth is that property tax relief has been determined on a biennial basis. No permanent solution has been found that we can consistently rely on. In addition, I believe we can provide broad relief to all of our citizens is to remove sales tax on clothing while at the same time making local governments who are relying on sales tax revenue whole. Other states have done it, so can North Dakota."

Childcare

  • Excerpt: "If our state is to continue prospering, we need to have the best educated workforce ever and that starts with early childhood education. Finally, we should be helping our best and brightest students succeed in exceptional technical training and higher education. Why not be the most attractive place in the nation where the best talent can be educated for one of the best job markets in the country. Our college students shouldn’t be faced with constant tuition increases while cutting taxes for out of state corporations."

Ethics

  • Excerpt: "It seems to me that when an organization with a political agenda is paying for lavish trips and showering gifts on our state elected officials, they ought to at least report those trips and gifts so that citizens can make a judgment on who they are really representing. This kind of back room politics needs to see the daily sunshine. It concerns me that proposals to do that are consistently defeated on party line votes. I just don’t think that sound ethical standards should be a partisan issue."

Moderation

  • Excerpt: "Extreme agendas are not what North Dakotans want. In recent legislative sessions, we’ve seen an energized group of legislators bring radical legislation written by out of state interest groups to our state. We’ve seen legislators try to approve a permanent reduction in the North Dakota oil extraction tax with claims that our oil economy will falter if they don’t let these companies take more money out of the state. That may be a Texas or Oklahoma plan, but it is not a North Dakota plan. We’ve had others sponsor extreme and unconstitutional legislation that would limit the ability of a family to consider in vitro conception and hamper end of life care provided by groups like Hospice. And the state is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend these laws while we are turning our back on families that desperately need help to make sure their children grow up with food security, proper health care, and an education that gives them the best chance in life. Those radical measures were not a North Dakota plan, they were the plans of interest groups located in Virginia and Washington, DC."
