Issues

Campaign themes

Thompson's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Air Quality

  • Excerpt:"The next major steps will depend on what research shows about our particular problem; it is fairly unusual and we need to be careful not to do things that will make the situation worse."

Communication

  • Excerpt:"We’ve got to work harder and smarter to involve and listen to more people from every corner of the city in decision making."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt:"Raising taxes and fees are abhorrent, especially in today’s economy. A way to help meet increasing needs without raising taxes or fees is to grow our own economy."

Thrift

  • Excerpt:"Tax dollars and fees for service are a sacred trust given by the citizens for their elected public servants to use in the very best way – the way that the majority of citizens would want. I’ll do all I can to make sure every dollar spent is effectively and efficiently spent according to citizen priority."
