Campaign themes

2010

Farrow's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • "Create a climate for job growth" - " The first thing we need to do is repeal the combined reporting tax. "
  • "Lower taxes and Reduce spending" " Both the state and federal government have made decisions that will be difficult to maintain in the present economic conditions."
  • "Transportation" - " We need to focus on the current road system and how to best maintain it. Legislation that would not allow dipping into the transportation funds to offset general expenses will be important."
  • "Stop over-regulation" - "Paul realizes that small businesses create most of our jobs. He will work to get rid of unnecessary regulation that stifles growth."
  • "Provide quality education" -"There are two issues that have to be evaluated when it comes to the education system in Wisconsin: 1. How we educate our children and adults returning; 2. How we fund our schools. "
