Campaign themes


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

Balancing the State's Budget

  • Excerpt: "I support our State's Constitution and will support our State's effort to encourage the Federal Government to live within its means. This means that we support what government should spend our hard earned money on - priorities such as: public safety, education and our State's roads and infrastructure."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "I believe that we must reform our State Government's spending and economic development efforts. The best way to jump start economic development is by eliminating red tape and governmental layers of bureaucracy that currently exist."


  • Excerpt: "I strongly believe that local control is the best control - especially when it comes to our schools. The people in our community know our needs and our community best."

Energy Independence & Exploration

  • Excerpt: "I pledge to do everything possible to make our State financially strong and energy independent."

Our Environment

  • Excerpt: "I support a clean and safe environment. I also am a strong supporter of conversation."
