Campaign themes


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

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "The Sacramento politicians are at war with the Central Valley and it's time we fought back. We must cut taxes now and I will start with the $800 new business "start-up" tax. "
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Our unemployment rate in the Central Valley is near 20 percent! The only way to get our economy back on track is by creating new jobs. We need to first reverse government over-regulation - starting with AB 32. "
  • Agriculture
Excerpt: "Career politicians passed AB 32, which is job-killing environmental extremism at its worst. I will be the Valley voice in Sacramento and fight to repeal these restrictive regulations. "
  • Water
Excerpt: "Central Valley farmers need water to irrigate their crops, make a living and keep employees. It's time to turn the pumps back on and get the Central Valley farming again. Our families are more important than a fish - period. "
