Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Education

  • Excerpt: "I am in favor of eliminating the federal Department of Education (created in 1979) and returning 100% of our money, educational control and decisions back to Michigan. Our schools will have more money and resources for our teachers and students. We’ll have more educational freedom."

Economy

  • Excerpt: "Creating a pro-business climate will lure additional businesses to Michigan, employ more people and provide additional (new) tax revenue. I believe government often gets in the way of free enterprise growth and if we’re not careful with the fine balance of prudent regulation, this will continue to slow job growth."

Corporate Welfare

  • Excerpt: "I will never participate in or support any legislation where the government picks and chooses private-sector winners and losers. The free market (you and I) does that best."

Balanced Budget Amendment and Federal Term Limits

  • Excerpt: "I support a Federal Balanced Budget Amendment and would support an Article V Convention if it gains support of the 38 states. I would also support Federal Term Limits as part of this Convention."

Infrastructure and Roads

  • Excerpt: "Michigan families have been forced to tighten their belts and I know Michigan government can do the same. We pay enough taxes. We need to find ways to cut waste in 27 state departments before we ask our citizens for more hard earned tax dollars."
