Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Adams's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Change the funding formula and make it easier for everyone to understand. Consider alternative funding sources such as a ballot initiative for state trust lands which would provide sustainable funding for education. Honor local control while mandating high standards for ALL students. Eliminate ALL unfunded mandates. Ensure a level playing field amongst the different education models that promotes parents' right to chose the best educational setting for their children."

Jobs & the Economy

  • Excerpt: "In order to grow our economy we must attract new businesses and bring in new jobs. Get government out of the way of business and let them do what they do best, sell product/services and create new jobs! Make it easier for businesses do to business with our state. We have a number of fine organizations such as the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Arizona Commerce Authority, Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC), the Western Maricopa Coalition (Westmarc), the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and many more. We need to work together and help these organizations attract new businesses, stimulate the market and bring in those much needed jobs to grow our economy!"

The Budget

  • Excerpt: "Accountability and sustainability are keys when considering spending priorities. We must have the intelligence and strength to tap into reserves when needed and the climate is right and the courage to say no when the money isn’t there."
