Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Sizemore's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Business, the Economy and Agriculture

In order to have a strong Montana I believe in a free market system with the power resting in the people rather than controlled by the government. Many Montana’s rely on the land for their wealth and subsistence, others depend on small businesses to provide for their needs, more taxes and more involvement by the government at the Federal and State level is not what Montana needs to continue to grow and prosper.

Education

Education is vital for all levels of society. I believe that a one size fits all system is not what Montana needs. Instead Montanans should have the right to educate their children in the manner of their choosing: public, private, online, home schooled, religious and chartered. Likewise an affordable and challenging higher education system that allows its students to grow and prepares them for the world of work that awaits them is needed for a strong economy. Liberal and Fine arts, Business, Science and Trade schools should be promoted in order to keep a diverse and smart Montana.

Natural Resources

We are a vast and plentiful state that has so many natural resources in our land. The smart development of Oil, Gas, Coal, and Timber ensures an independent and growing Montana. We should not forget sustainable and renewable Energy as well. Complete reliance on any one resource creates instability. Wind, Hydro, Thermal and Solar energy are also part of Montana’s resources and should be developed as well.

Second Amendment

Plainly and simply the Right to Bear Arms should not be infringed.[2][3]
