Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Parker's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "I support increased funding for K-12, smarter allocation of resources, rewarding and retaining good teachers, encouraging innovation in the classroom, school choice, and preparing our children for college and the work place. In addition, our state must do more to keep higher education costs low so that college is affordable and students are not deeply in debt after graduation."

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "I support tax incentives for companies who keep jobs in the state and for hiring Vets and people who are unemployed. Improving the economy and lowering unemployment will go a long way toward solving budget and deficit problems at all levels of government."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "I support the bi-partisan efforts of the Colorado Assembly to create the Colorado Health Benefits Exchange, an online marketplace where small businesses and individuals can easily compare and purchase health insurance. I also support efforts to curb costs with patient-centered programs that move away from fee for service."

Energy/Environment

  • Excerpt: "I support safe, responsible development all energy resources as well as providing incentives for utilities, businesses and homeowners to improve energy efficiencies. Additional investment incentives for development of renewable resources would lead to energy independence and more jobs for Colorado."

Spending/Budget/Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I support spending and tax reforms that simplify, consolidate and/or reconcile existing statutes."
