|Elections and appointments|
|Last election||November 4, 2014|
Salka's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "As your assemblyman, I will propose the following: doubling the STAR property-tax exemption for all homeowners, a move that would save the average homeowner an additional $700 annually and seniors $1,300, and 30 percent income tax rate cut for families making less than $300,000 per year, saving each middle-class taxpayer an average of $1,033 annually."
- Excerpt: "When it comes to providing a world-class education, our state is failing. Instead of being a leader in education, we rank close to the bottom nationwide. This must change. The first step is revamping our broken system and repealing the Common Core standards that have devastated our students and teachers alike."
Accountability and accessibility
- Excerpt: "As our Assemblyman, John Salka will bring the same energy and enthusiasm he has brought to the office of Brookfield Town Supervisor. He wants our residents to be involved in our government and if elected, he will reach out to constituents through a series of district wide town hall meetings and summits, so he can bring their voices with him to Albany."
Small business advocacy and reform
- Excerpt: "As Assemblyman, he plans on bringing the perspective of the small business owner to Albany and cut the red tape and restrictions that make it so hard for an entrepreneur to succeed, much less make payroll and ends meet."
- Excerpt: "With his experience as chairman of the Madison County Energy Committee, John Salka has been a proactive advocate for cutting-edge technologies and low-cost renewable energy for residents. This advocacy is what John plans to bring to the Assembly, so our residents can have the high-quality, affordable energy they deserve."
- Excerpt: "The skyrocketing costs of Medicaid affects our communities at all levels and needs to be addressed. With over 30 years experience in medicine and management, we can trust John to implement key reforms to make our Medicaid system more efficient, providing better services to our residents without putting the burden on our taxpayers."
Repealing the SAFE Act
- Excerpt: "As a law-abiding gun owner, John was outraged by the SAFE Act and its passage in the dead of night last year. This unconstitutional measure doesn’t solve the root issues of crime and only punishes sportsmen, sportswomen and gun owners who have done nothing wrong. Simply put, the SAFE Act must be repealed. As your assemblyman, John will work to make that happen."
