|Missouri House of Representatives, District 14|
Corlew's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
I will work with the General Assembly to achieve sensible solutions for Missouri to allow the economy to grow, to keep and attract businesses, and to promote job growth. Government should support an environment in which area entrepreneurs can grow their businesses and hire more Northland workers, so they in turn can provide a good life for their families.
As a recent school board member, I understand that local control of schools is important. To be effective, our schools must serve students and families, not federal bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. High standards are required, as is rigorous coursework, all of which I'll advocate for. But more than any standard, we must emphasize the importance of family involvement to ensure student achievement. So we need to encourage input from parents and teamwork among educators, families, and communities.
The Northland has excellent schools, from elementary and secondary schools, to colleges and trade schools. I will work to maintain and further that excellence through adequate funding of education, so that our schools can maintain school safety, hire great teachers, and provide extraordinary educational experiences for Northland students. I will also promote policies that encourage partnerships between the business and education communities. The Northland Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) is a great example. A collaborative effort between area school districts, Northland CAPS provides high-school students with real-world and career-oriented learning experiences through partnerships with companies in emerging industries. I was proud to be a part of the school board during the program's inaugural year. As a member of the General Assembly, I'll seek ways to foster the development of collaborative initiatives that benefit students, their families, and employers.
Based upon my support for education in Missouri, I have received endorsements from local and state education associations, including NKC MSTA and Better Schools for Missouri (MO Association of School Administrators, MO Association of Elementary School Principals, MO Association of Secondary School Principals, Missouri Association of School Business Officials, and Missouri Council of Career & Technical Administrators).
Low Taxes/Limited Government
Public Safety/Law Enforcement
Corlew's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I will push for an economic climate in which business owners can be innovative, grow their companies, and create jobs without the burden of heavy and uncertain government regulation."
- Excerpt: "I will fight for lower tax rates for both individuals and businesses, so they can keep more of their own hard-earned money and put it to better use to spur the economy."
- Excerpt: "I support local control of schools. To be effective, our schools must serve students and families, not federal bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. High standards are required, yet the methods for meeting them should be developed at the local and state level, through a cooperative partnership of school boards, educators, and parents."
Support for Seniors
- Excerpt: "We must respect senior citizens through policies that improve their financial security and quality of life. To allow seniors to keep their homes, I’ll seek a cap on property taxes for those on fixed incomes."
- Excerpt: "I have been endorsed by Missouri Right to Life. Life at all stages must be respected. I supported the Missouri Legislature in passing the late-term, post-viability abortion ban in 2011."
