Clardy's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Create a pro-growth environment so local small businesses can create more jobs
- Excerpt:"I will work to eliminate the regulations and red tape that make it difficult to start businesses in Texas. Each day 1,000 people move to Texas to find work and I want them to come to East Texas. We must take the necessary steps that promote business development and create sustainable jobs for the residents of House District 11."
Hold the Line Against Higher Taxes
- Excerpt:"I will not support any legislation that raises taxes. I believe government should live within its means and should not ask its citizens to bear a greater burden in these economic times. I will also not support legislation that passes along unfunded mandates to local governments to implement."
Work to Find Texas’ Solution to Illegal Immigration
- Excerpt:"We can’t keep waiting on Washington, D.C. to do something about the issues along our Border. Texas must take a stand and protect itself against the influx of illegal immigrants who cross the Rio Grande and become burdens to our State. We must provide the resources to secure our border and stop incentivizing those who come to our country illegally."
Limit the Size of Government and End Unnecessary Regulations
- Excerpt:"Just as we are asking Washington, D.C. to honor the 10th Amendment and return more authority to the states, Texas must do the same and return authority to local governments and its citizenry. This is accomplished by eliminating funding for programs that no longer serve the needs of Texans and putting an end to overreaching regulations that stifle business and job growth in East Texas."
Fight for Our Water Rights
- Excerpt:"I will work against any legislation that tries to reverse this decision or attempts to limit the control landowners have over their property."
