Campaign themes


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

Excerpt: "Our children deserve to go to excellent and safe schools, but the Kansas Legislature has failed to make education a priority. Kansas spends the same today as we did 11 years ago, and Governor Brownbacks actions and Republican votes have meant increased class sizes and the laying off of quality teachers. I believe the best way to improve our economy and strengthen our state is to improve our public schools. Businesses want to hire skilled workers and talented people need good paying jobs. That's why I support Kansas Kids First, a multi-year plan to responsibly restore funding cuts while also reducing property taxes."
Excerpt: "Everyone needs to pay their fair share of the tax burden. We need to set better priorities and be more financially responsible. Last spring, Governor Brownback signed a tax bill knowing it would cause immediate budget shortfalls that could only be made up by massive cuts to public schools and increases in property taxes."
Excerpt: "It’s time to we do more to help families who work hard and play by the rules. Simply cutting taxes for big corporations will not create new jobs. I support measures that will actually get Kansans off the unemployment rolls and onto a payroll: Targeted investments in transportation and education, improved job training and technical education, investments in biosciences and alternative energy, and incentives for small businesses."

The Score Card gives each legislator a score from 1%-100% based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on specific issues which the Kansas Policy Institute thought were pro-limited government policies.[7]
