Campaign themes


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

Fix Our Roads

  • Excerpt: "Stinchcomb supports using taxes for their ORIGINAL purpose. The gas tax should be used to fund our roads, not as a convenient general fund for unrelated programs. It's not that the people are taxed too little, its that government spends too much!"

Common Sense Regulations

  • Excerpt: "REGULATIONS.

Stinchcomb believes in good, far regulation. If a regulation does not serve the purpose of protecting the people, it should not be in place. Michigan had 18,012 administrative rules in 2012, for which businesses AND consumers had to comply. Regulatory compliance costs us all. Let's bring the cost of compliance down, and leave more money in the pockets of THE PEOPLE."
Reform Government

  • Excerpt: "Stinchcomb believes in real reform, not temporary solutions to problems. Tax reform, part-time legislature, local government reform, education reform, and promoting Washington D.C. reform will be top priority. It's time to put government in its place, under the power of THE PEOPLE."
