Campaign website
Phil Campbell was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 47 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1]


Campaign themes


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


  • Excerpt: "Attempts to isolate agricultural activity from residential land should be rejected; small agriculture in particular must be encouraged. Michigan ought to abolish the web of regulations surrounding production, processing, transportation and sale of homegrown meat, poultry and dairy so that a truly local food market can emerge. "


  • Excerpt: "Part of getting where we need to be is branding, but a large part will be attained by creating conditions conducive to business investment. In some cases this will mean capital investment in infrastructure, in others it may mean incentive programs or equitable tax abatements and tax reform, still in others negotiations and agreements with Canada or other states. "


  • Excerpt: "Education in Michigan is in drastic need of attention by competent lawmakers. Our priorities should be to maintain local control of our districts and our curriculum, thus rejecting federal interventions (i.e., defunding Common Core) in what is rightfully a local issue"


  • Excerpt: "The State should continue to incentivize utility companies to find innovative ways to reduce utility costs while cautiously exploring renewable sources of energy that show promise and are not overly ambitious."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "While it is undeniable that every American should have access to health care, the great debate of our age is how to best move towards this goal. It seems to me that in addressing these problems, market solutions have not been adequately explored."
