Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

Utah Values

  • Excerpt: "There are a number of traditional values I hold but don’t list as my primary issues. Among these are my belief in marriage between a man and a woman, the right to life, the right to bear arms, the right to own property, the right to free speech and religion, limited government, and the balance of power between the federal government branches as well as between the state and federal levels."

Community

  • Excerpt: "I believe our streets should be safe and our quality of life defended. I make sure that we are not ignored or overlooked by state government."

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "I will make certain that your voice is heard on Utah’s Capitol Hill to assure fair allocation of funds for Westside projects."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I recognize the need for better educational outcomes. We must eliminate wasteful spending and reinvest those dollars in the classroom and in programs that work"

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "In addition, our state government needs to live within its means. We do not need to go further into debt to try and build a utopian society right now. We can expand our infrastructure when we have the money to pay for it."
