Issues

Campaign Themes

2014

Osterholt's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "We need to fully fund our local schools to assure parents that we are giving their children a fighting chance to compete for jobs in the future economy."

Innovation

  • Excerpt: "We invest in the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, which has done great work to promote scientific technology research and business, but has been criticized about funding only the politically connected. Politics should not be a consideration in what research and businesses we invest our money. It should not be used to determine what is added to science text books. Investments should be made based on objective, nonpartisan criteria."

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "Commuters in our district have experienced more traffic congestion and traffic accidents as development has expanded. According to TxDOT, we are $4 Billion short on funding for road maintenance and construction. We need to stop using revenue intended for roads on other government programs while providing a tax incentive for businesses who allow employees to work from home."
