Issues

Campaign themes

Jenkins' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & the Economy

  • Excerpt:"The answer is jobs from investment and stimulation, not harmful budget cuts and tax breaks for the wealthy."

The Environment

  • Excerpt:"Jenkins will promote the research and implementation of alternative, sustainable, and renewable energy solutions. He believes that by preserving our natural resources, we are preserving our quality of life, our economic growth and our health."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Like most people, Jason Jenkins considers the education of our children in K-12 as well as higher education for adults, as one of the most profound services the government can provide. Not only does he believe in the proverbial idea of “a mind is a terrible thing to waste,” but that the happiness, success, adaptability, compassion, mental health and capability to earn a living are dependent on general education, critical thinking and communications skills obtained formally in the classroom or even privately on one’s own."
