Campaign themes


Sheppard's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Tax Policy

  • Excerpt: "I want to see more money in the citizen’s pocket. I will not favor tax increase, and believe strongly in common sense approval and use of funds."


  • Excerpt: "It’s time to evaluate what we are spending, and where it is being spent. Michiganders have spent too long dealing with bad road conditions."


  • Excerpt: "Because schools do not work on unlimited funds (tax-payer dollars), we should be more closely evaluating where every dollar goes. This will give our kids a better chance at a higher quality education, while preparing them for their post-graduation futures."

No-fault Insurance

  • Excerpt: "It is time for michigan to re-vamp the no fault insurance program. For too long citizens and business alike have paid higher premiums due to the unlimited medical claims from catastrophic accidents. This fund is a private fund and has no real oversight."


  • Excerpt: "I am a pro-life candidate and I will stand by the statement that life begins at conception."
