Issues

Campaign themes

2012

On his 2012 campaign site, Stephens outlines his campaign themes:

  • "I am not a career politician, lawyer, or doctor. I am a small business owner, who like so many of you, has been stifled by government regulation that costs us and the consumer... With all the money we have spent on safety, health, and schools, we should be the safest, longest-living, and smartest generation ever; but we are not. More laws and money is not the answer; maybe personal responsibility is... The one-size-fits-all mentality for our state needs consideration. Our lives in Eastern Oregon are so different than those in the Willamette Valley, including weather, traffic, and lifestyles. This does not make us or them better, just different. So with different needs, let's not pass laws that lump us all together."
