Campaign themes


Knollenberg's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Protecting Seniors

  • Excerpt: "Seniors on a fixed income need to be protected. Now that the state's budget has stabilized, we need to look at rolling back the tax on pensions."

Improving our Roads

  • Excerpt: "Our roads are atrocious! Well-kept roads promote economic growth. Our lawmakers haven't made road funding a priority, but I will!"

Keeping Taxes Low

  • Excerpt: "Government needs to live within their means just like you do. As a conservative I don't like increasing taxes and I won't support any tax hike."

Reducing Government Waste

  • Excerpt: "Wasteful spending is the kiss of death for any business or household budget and government is no different. Spending needs to be evaluated and measured regularly."

Streamline Regulations

  • Excerpt: "Jobs, more specifically, good paying jobs are critical for economic prosperity. Government needs to get out of the way and regulations which hinder job growth need to be reformed."
