Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Peters' website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Tax Relief

As Marylanders we are constantly revising our budgets, tightening our belts and making tough choices to do more with less. Many of our “leaders” in Annapolis, however, continue growing government with their tax and spend policies. I reject this way of governing. I have a solid record of fiscal responsibility and working to keep taxes low. While I will start by working to repeal the rain tax and stop the gas tax, I am committed to working on comprehensive tax relief for all Marylanders. Maryland should be a place where families can afford to live and businesses are encouraged to thrive.

Education

A strong, healthy and vibrant state requires educated citizens and a strong workforce. I will work to ensure all students have access to quality education. I support empowering parents and students with school choice. School choice promotes positive change through competition, while giving parents more control and allowing them to pursue the best learning environment for their child.

I do not support the Common Core Initiative. While I believe education reform should be a priority, I do not support nationalizing education. Schools and teachers should have the freedom, resources and training to meet their individual needs. Charting the path to excellence in education should be a local prerogative.

Agriculture

My family has been working with the agriculture industry and farm families in Carroll and Frederick Counties for over 50 years. I understand and appreciate the vital role agriculture plays in our economy and our quality of life. I am committed to working with our farm community to reduce burdensome and costly regulations, protect property rights and expand opportunities for commerce within the agriculture industry. Reducing the Size of Government and Eliminating Overreaching Regulatory Burdens

In order to have a healthy and vibrant state we must work to streamline our government, eliminate overreaching regulatory burdens and make Maryland more business friendly. As a councilwoman, I worked to promote policies to retain, expand and recruit business investment and to eliminate overreaching control by the government. Such policies are essential for growing the tax base with business investment to aid in reducing the tax burden on our citizens.

The Constitution

I will work to support and defend the Maryland Constitution and the United States Constitution. I do not support the recent gun control legislation and I will fight for the constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.[2][3]
