Issues

Campaign themes

2012

On his (timed out) campaign site, Johnson outlines his campaign themes and policy goals:

  • Saving Money:
  • "I will not accept a pension - the folks of the 92nd District should not be burdened by those they elect long after they have served in office."
  • "I will not accept any pay raises."
  • "I will pay into my own health care expenses, just as I do now in business."
  • "I will cut expenses in my own office by a minimum of 10%."
  • Fixing What is Broken in Pennsylvania:
  • "Making Pennsylvania a "Right to Work State;" to include repealing requirements for PLA's, Agency Shop while protecting Secret Ballots."
  • "Work to change Public Pensions for State Employees to a 401K based retirement program;"
  • "Tackle the problem of Prevailing Wage which adds costs unnecessarily to our public construction projects;"
  • "Deal with the 50 or so mandates in Pennsylvania on health care policies;"
  • Property Taxes & Spending:
  • "Vote to Reduce and cut taxes in every area possible; "
  • "Vote in Support of House Bill 1776 - the Property Tax Independence Act"
  • "Vote "NO" to spending money we don't have."
  • "Vote "NO" if the annual budgets aren't balanced."
  • "Propose that ANY increases in State Spending be tied to inflation."
  • "Propose that the citizens be given the chance to vote for or against any increases in spending."
  • Jobs & Unemployment:
  • "I will meet regularly with the businesses in our area..."
  • "Review all regulations in the state which, perhaps at one time made sense, but may not apply anymore."
  • "Remove the State from any business venture or operation that could be better served by small business or by competition."
  • "We should make it a priority to enable permits and licenses to be filed, renewed and updated online..."
  • "There should be a simple way to know of any plan or proposal being considered or moving through the legislature so they can determine if now is the right time to start a new business..."
