Campaign themes


Seiter's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

An extensive overhaul to our tax code, replacing all of Kentucky’s various income, business and sales tax with an all-inclusive sales tax (commonly referred to as a fair tax).

By changing the KY tax code, KY will become more competitive and attractive to businesses. A fair tax has multiple benefits for ease of compliance, increasing the tax base, and allowing consumers to choose where and how they want to spend all of their money. It is time we reevaluate our current tax structure and look at developing a more competitive and lean tax code.

Statewide decriminalization of Marijuana possession under one ounce.

While other states replenish their coffers with increased tax revenues from Marijuana sales, our police waste time and taxpayer funds to lock up and charge teenagers and young adults with possession which tarnishes their record for future employment and places them in a subclass of Americans that is difficult to leave.

Putting a stop to drastic cuts in higher education.

The cost of tuition at the University of Louisville has risen over $1,300 from 2008 – 2013. When there are cuts to higher education, the costs get passed directly onto students and parents! In the state where it is said “education pays,” students are the ones paying the most! We can and will do better!

Term Limits

The term “Public servant” is inappropriately used by almost all in the realm of politics. I truly believe in the voluntary return to term limits in each and every public office. Taxpayers do not fork over their hard earned dollars for corruption to become further entrenched in our statehouses and city councils. I would pledge to an 8 year term limit in whatever position I run for in order to set an example for future generations of elected officials.

Statewide Drug Policy reform, keep families together by no longer prosecuting non- violent drug offenders.

The war on drugs unfairly targets and rips apart working class American families. Locking non-violent offenders in prison is not only an injustice, but also a highly unnecessary burden passed on to the tax payer.

Various studies demonstrate that once a person is introduced to the prison system they are much more likely to reenter it. It is high time in Kentucky; we look towards viable alternatives to simply putting people into prison for non-violent drug offenses. Another key aspect belief is the restoration of civil rights to felons who were unfairly persecuted under these draconian laws.[2][3]
