Campaign themes


VanderMeer's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Create jobs & strengthen our economy

  • Excerpt: "We need to keep Wisconsin moving forward by promoting a business-friendly climate, which will help attract employers and bolster the ones we have here today."

Control government spending & hold the line on taxes

  • Excerpt: "We need to live within our means and get rid of any unnecessary spending. For too long, Wisconsin had a spending addiction. That was finally solved in 2011 when Governor Walker and the legislature eliminated a $3.6 Billion budget deficit without raising taxes or using tricks or gimmicks. I am committed to fiscal reforms that make sure we do not spend beyond our means and ensure we keep our income and property taxes at reasonable levels."

Eliminate waste, fraud and abuse

  • Excerpt: "I am committed to reforming the state’s welfare system in order to root out waste, fraud and abuse in all state programs so that tax dollars are spent wisely and those who truly need and qualify for assistance will receive it."

Improve our Education system & Workforce Training efforts

  • Excerpt: "We need to look for ways to improve and reform our education system to meet the needs of our workforce. I also support merit pay so the best teachers can be rewarded for their excellent work in the classroom."

Working together to move the State forward

  • Excerpt: "Partisan politics have been counterproductive, and Madison is in need of common sense and cool heads."
