Stalzer's campaign website highlights the following issues:
- Excerpt: "The role of government is not to choose winners and losers, but to provide a level playing field that allows us the freedom to pursue our individual goals."
- Excerpt: "You work hard for what you earn, the government has a responsibility to spend your money wisely rather than ask for more of it. I believe the state should implement zero base budgeting instead of just adding to last years spending."
- Excerpt: "We cannot improve healthcare by restricting access to services. SD needs to resist the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) by whatever means possible. There may be some good provisions that should be retained, but on balance it would be better to start over. In addition to the individual mandate being unconstitutional, the 50,000 new people it places on Medicaid in SD will break the state budget."
- Excerpt: "Education funding needs to remain a priority for the state, but control belongs with the local school board and parents, not the state or federal government."
- Excerpt: "I believe in the sanctity of life from conception to natural death. I received a 100% rating from South Dakota Right to Life."
- Excerpt: "I believe the 2nd Amendment confers an individual right."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
