Nelson has worked as a real estate appraiser for 30 years.
Nelson's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"I will work to lower commercial property taxes, through reform, not a transfer of the tax burden to homeowners or the income tax. I will work to reform the corporate taxing system and lower the rates to competitive levels. I will rollback stifling regulations, while retaining meaningful consumer and environmental protection."
- Excerpt:"I will work to simplify the property tax system, so homeowners have certainty and stability in their tax bills. I will also work with, not against, our local governments, giving them the tools to control costs."
- Excerpt:"I support the use of annual evaluations, and I support making those evaluations available to parents and taxpayers. Administrative costs at public schools are way higher than at private schools, and they don’t improve education. I pledge to work to lower administrative costs and put more money in the classroom."
- Excerpt:"I will work for pension reform to control the state’s future liability. I pledge to fund our pension obligations, not simply push the ball down the road."
