Candidate for
Arizona State Senate District 5
(dead link) Campaign website
Sam Scarmardo was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 5 of the Arizona State Senate.


Campaign themes


Scarmardo's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Our Constitution
Excerpt: "Too much of what our government does lacks a Constitutional basis, so I will always first ask whether what we are voting on is Constitutional or not."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: " will never vote for a bill that results in you paying more in taxes. I co-wrote and helped pass Prop 200 back in 1996 and since then we haven’t had any tax increases in Lake Havasu City since then."
  • Spending
Excerpt: "I will only vote for balanced budgets and I will not increase our state’s debt. We need to be paying off our debts, not borrowing more. Debt will enslave us if we allow us, so we must live within our means."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "I support and will defend SB1070, secure borders, employer sanctions, and efforts to enforce our laws and protect our citizens and our jobs. Illegal is illegal, and that isn’t going to change no matter how often the mainstream media tries to redefine it."
  • 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "Our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Period. That’s what I believe, that is my record, and that is how I have lived my life."
