Campaign themes


Kalagias submitted the following statement to Ballotpedia:[1]

I decided to run for office because I know my country and state are heading in the wrong direction, enacting unsustainable policies that will take the American dream completely away from our future generations. I want to leave my part of the world in better shape than I found it. We need to do this through more limited government, decreased spending, decreased taxes, and personal responsibility. Republicans and Democrats are concerned only with increasing the power of the Republicans and Democrats. I want to give the power back to the people.[2]
