Jim Sorvillo was a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the Arkansas State Senate, District 32.
Sorvillo's campaign website listed the following issues:
- "Tax reform must be a priority. Dealing with the income tax, sales tax, property tax, corporate tax, excise tax, capital gain tax and more, is confusing and a burden to the average person."
- "Arkansas is the seventh highest taxed state, this is unacceptable. Arkansas' unemployment rate is at a all time high, this is unacceptable. To create jobs in Arkansas, the business tax rate will need to be competitive with our neighboring states."
- "A recent survey reported that $161 million dollars in unemployment insurance paid out either in error or fraudulent claims. There is no excuse for this oversight. If in error, rectify, if fraud, prosecute, regardless this money should be recovered."
- "Voter identification should be made to all citizens that vote."
- "The state leadership should not be in the business of picking winners or losers through "the Quick Action Closing Fund". President Obama tried it and in one instance it has cost the American tax payers more than $535 million dollars in loan guarantees. This money went down the drain in a bankrupt solar panel business."
- "There are reasons to use investment incentives to attract capital which would create jobs but, there must be close scrutiny and due process in an effort to avoid more of the same waste, fraud and abuse. "
- "The so called "Obama Health Care Bill" should be repealed at the federal level. The Democrat controlled state House and Senate, should cease with their efforts to implement a federal national health care mandate."
Sorvillo ran in the 2012 election for Arkansas Senate, District 32. Sorvillo ran unopposed in the May 22 Republican primary and was defeated by incumbent David Johnson (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
