Campaign themes


Tedder's website highlights the following campaign themes:[3]

Budget and Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Raising taxes is not an option to solving the budgetary woes of the present and future. Simply put, Jim will stand firm against raising taxes on Michigan families already overburdened by shrinking wages and rising costs."

Promoting Business and Commerce

  • Excerpt: "As a small business owner, Jim knows the importance of saving businesses money and time. A careful evaluation of every new regulation will need to be undertaken. Further, Jim will seek to eliminate egregious regulations currently in place, especially as they impose barriers to entry for aspiring new enterprises vital to an economic renaissance."


  • Excerpt: "As an educator, Jim knows how important it is to provide quality and efficient services to our kids. Michigan’s future is relying on properly spending and managing our public school systems, even in trying financial times."


  • Excerpt: "It is no secret that our infrastructure is in terrible condition. Lack of investment in our roads year after year has come back to haunt us this winter. Jim will turn over every rock in Lansing looking for dollars to fix this problem. Good, safe roads are an integral foundation to attracting new businesses and jobs to Michigan. Jim will boldly accept the charge to make fixing roads a top legislative priority."
