Issues

Campaign themes

2014

In an article with the News of Orange County, Chaney's interview highlights the following issues:[1]

Economy

  • Excerpt: "I think we’re going to have to do something that politicians don’t want to do and that’s to address the purpose of work and the dignity that you can find in work regardless of white collar, blue collar."

Education

  • Excerpt: "My answer is we need to open education up, make it open to free-market principles. People complain about charter schools not being accountable, which is nonsense to me because if charter schools have parents and students wanting their services, they stay open. If they don’t, they shut down. That is the ultimate accountability."

Natural resources and energy policy

  • Excerpt: "The big issue with energy is we need to let facts and not politics drive that, and I think if the economics works with it, we need to consider it. But I don’t think right now from what I’m being told that the economics are such that the energy companies will be running at our door."
