Campaign themes


Chew's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Infrastructure Renewal: "As a Congressman, my signature legislative agenda will be a reprioritizing and reimagining of our nation's infrastructure: modern roads and clean, efficient transportation, rebuilt bridges, secure electrical grids and renewable energy. This program of infrastructure renewal and reinvention will also be a formidable engine for job growth. "
  • Reinventing Education: "A great education prepares our kids to lead rewarding lives. To have the skills they need to adapt and thrive. The stakes couldn't be higher. While teachers, administrators, students and parents should commit to the highest standards of performance we have to think beyond standards."
  • Controlling Federal Spending: "Congress' inability to set priorities is the primary reason that our national debt is approaching $17 trillion. That computes to over $53,000 in debt per citizen. This burden is a terrible legacy to leave to our children, and the harm is compounded by the fact that this debt puts downward pressure on our economy, costing us the jobs and spending that could fuel a robust recovery."
  • Champion Small Business: "As a business owner for the last 30 years, I've confronted many of the issues of small businesses across the country. Small business is stifled by undue barriers and burdens imposed by government. This slows economic growth and hurts job creation."
  • Common Sense Regulatory Reform: "Regulation is an appropriate role of government, but more and more, administrative agencies are supplanting Congress' legislative role with aggressive, burdensome regulations that stifle economic growth. Congress needs to review these burdensome regulations with the goal of simplifying, streamlining and when necessary, eliminating them."
