Campaign themes


Pompa’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • More Local Control
Excerpt: "One size fits all solutions simply don’t work. Think about it in terms of your own family. If you have kids, you know that what one kid likes is not necessarily what they all like. That’s why Tony favors local control as the best and smartest way to get things done."
  • Limited Government
Excerpt: "The bigger government means higher taxes and less freedom. Both are a danger to our economy and to our quality of life. Tony favors a more limited role for government in our lives."
  • Job Killing Regulations
Excerpt: "Tony’s company has done business in nineteen states and has had to deal with different burdensome government regulations in every one. He’ll tell you that kind of experience will “make a Republican out of anyone."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Tony went back to look at the amount of taxes, in particular payroll taxes for his employees, he’s paid since being in business. Turns out it’s an amazing $5 million. No one wants lower taxes than Tony Pompa."
  • Pro-2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "Tony is an avid sportsman and a member of the NRA. He believes strongly in the preservation of our right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Constitution."
