Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Button's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Family

  • Excerpt: "Families are the foundation upon which this country was built. The evidence is abundant that healthy families produce outstanding students, workers, business leaders, sports figures, soldiers and great citizens. As your Representative I will ensure that programs and policies be supportive of the family and parental responsibility."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "One of the factors for healthy families is to have good jobs. While government should not be the source of good jobs, the regulations and taxes imposed by lawmakers can either encourage or oppress business."

Energy

  • Excerpt: "Energy consumption is crucial to both families and businesses. We are consumers of energy in a variety of ways such as: electricity or gas to heat and cool our homes and businesses, fuel for our vehicles that move people and goods we use everyday. Energy sources like natural gas, oil, and coal are also the origins for many of the materials used in our day to day products. Extracts from these minerals become part of our clothes, furniture, medicines, and parts of many other common products."

Small Government

  • Excerpt: "As your representative I will work tirelessly to reduce our State Government wherever possible and limit its impact on our personal lives and liberty."
