Campaign themes


Flesch's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

A Healthy Rural Economy

  • Excerpt: "The counties in the our district are ranked among the poorest in the state. But it’s not written that we have to be. I’ll make sure that our rural communities get the support we need to retain and create jobs."

Policy Making at Home

  • Excerpt: "State government should not step in and tell towns, cities, and counties how to govern. Those who understand local issues should be charged with making the best decisions for their communities. We need to trust local governments to make local decisions."

Sustainability and Conservation

  • Excerpt: "I’ve been entrusted with farmland that has sustained five generations of my family. I’ll work to protect our farms and natural areas for future generations."
