Campaign themes


Conard listed the following issues on his campaign website:[3]

  • State's rights
Excerpt: "So as a State Representative I will do everything I can to reign in the Federal Government and preserve the power of the Sovereign State of North Carolina."
  • State banks
Excerpt: "I would like to see North Carolina create it's own State bank modeled after the State Bank of North Dakota which would allow us to pay for projects at a third of the cost and cut the mega-monster banks out of the funding process."
  • Agriculture
Excerpt: "I think the agricultural sector of our economy has to be bolstered in an age where we are way too dependent on imported food. I think small family farms should be encouraged by our State government and regulations shouldn't overburden them to the advantage of the corporate agri-businesses. I would support giving tax breaks to small farms who grow food organically, NON-GMO, and responsibly using age-old techniques that have grown healthy food and healthy people for thousands of years."
  • Education
Excerpt: "We have a thriving homeschool community here in Durham and it's a great option that our State affords. Not everyone can or should do homeschooling but it's a freedom I think is worth fighting for. Our public and private schools are very important...I went to both as a child. I'd like to see less influence from the Department of Education in our schools and have more of our curriculum and standards determined by our locally elected school boards. I would like to propose requirements in our schools for mandatory classes on the Constitution and that the Bill of Rights be placed in a prominent place in every school for students and teachers to see. I'd also like to see more trade school type programs happening in our schools."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Companies should be attracted to North Carolina by low taxes but also a high quality work force. But because those companies receive tax benefits, H1B visas to employ highly skilled foreign workers need to be the diminished so that our people are hired first."
