Azzola's website highlights the following campaign themes:
|“||The state of Maine has been dead last in Forbes' business rankings for 4 years running. For Mainers to feed their families and prosper, we need to grow a healthy economy by reducing taxes, cutting regulations, and starting new industries like Hemp, Cannabis and Maine State Banking.
In order to achieve a sustainable living for its people, Maine needs to eliminate parasitic corporate welfare, end all subsidies and special programs, and open up the entire state to businesses of all sizes.
Maine needs to cut personal taxes across the board. Why not let people decide where to spend their money? The only fair tax is one which allows ordinary people to run their lives with a minimum of government involvement.
Maine needs to open up the healthcare market to increased competition, not try to over-regulate the market so that only a few big corporations with deep pockets, lobbyists and lawyers can profitably operate in this state.
Maine needs to make educational reform a priority. We need to free up choice in the educational marketplace, challenge the monopoly of state control, and allow parents better opportunities to educate their kids.
Maine needs to decriminalize non-violent drug offenses and reduce our prison population, saving the state money and allowing law enforcement to concentrate on real crimes.
Maine needs to protect the civil liberties of its citizens and eliminate intrusive electronic eavesdropping and surveillance, including drones, used to spy on peaceful, law abiding citizens.
