Campaign themes


Rowden's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "We must work hard to cut spending and simply live within our means. Individuals and families are punished for compiling debt they can’t pay off. Why should state and federal government be any different?"


  • Excerpt: "Low and simple tax rates also give business owners the certainty and stability to expand without the fear of unnecessary and untimely government interference."

Government Accountability

  • Excerpt: "As a State Representative, I will work to increase government accountability and restore trust between the citizen and government."


  • Excerpt: "We must harness the power of technology instead of fighting to push our students away from it. We must welcome new and fresh ideas to the education arena, and find new ways to inspire our kids to become the great leaders and innovators of tomorrow."

University of Missouri

  • Excerpt: "The state must do a better job of prioritizing spending and getting its fiscal house in order to ensure that job and revenue creators like the University of Missouri can continue to thrive and boost our local and state economy."
