Campaign themes

2012

The following excerpts come from Bogdanoff's campaign website:[3]

Education: "Before our children can learn, first and foremost they must feel safe.... We must do a better job of attracting the best and brightest teachers and principals to our schools. We must reward excellence! I will also continue to work to fine tune our accountability standards and promote more options and choices for our children...."

Economy: "Small businesses are the backbone of Florida’s economy and account for over 90% of the workforce. We must work to make our state a place where once again, we attract investment, corporate re-locations, and clean industry so that once again Florida’s job growth will be the envy of the nation."

Environment: ."..Florida is filled with environmental treasures. They must be protected in a responsible way so that future generations can enjoy their beauty as much as we have. I will continue to promote policies that recognize the fragile nature of Florida’s environment and its power in rebuilding our economy."

Taxes and spending: ."..During these challenging economic times, increasing taxes on millions of hard working Floridians is just simply wrong and is counter – productive to the positive steps we are taking to get the economic engine of Florida moving again. Government must reduce its spending and be a partner with Florida’s families and small businesses, not an impediment to progress and investment...."

2010

On her campaign website, Bogdanoff listed four issues she was concerned about.[4] They are:

  • Working to Improve Our Education System
Excerpt: "I believe that the safety and security of our children is paramount. Before our children can learn, first and foremost they must feel safe. That is why I authored and sponsored the Anti-Bully bill that passed and was signed by Governor Charlie Crist in 2007."
  • Revitalizing Florida's Economy
Excerpt: "The entrepreneurial spirit that you and I have grown to love in Florida for so many years hasn’t gone away, but the climate that used to foster millions of American’s to invest in small business is in danger due to high insurance costs and rising taxes."
  • Protecting our Natural Resources
Excerpt: "Florida is filled with environmental treasures. They must be protected in a responsible way so that future generations can enjoy their beauty as much as we have. I will continue to promote policies that recognize the fragile nature of Florida’s environment and its power in rebuilding our economy."
  • Keep Taxes Low and Reduce Government Spending
Excerpt: "Government must reduce its spending and be a partner with Florida’s families and small businesses, not an impediment to progress and investment. Nothing is more important than focusing on limiting spending and building our economy and jobs for Florida’s future."

Bogdanoff's sponsored legislation in the House included:

  • HB 251 - "Beverage Law: Authorizes certain direct shipment of wine; requires licensure of winery shippers; provides requirements for licensure; provides prohibitions"
  • HB 1157 - "Property Insurance: Expands uses of moneys in Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund to include Florida Hurricane Protection Program costs; revises provisions with respect to issuance & use of revenue bonds & emergency assessments"
  • HB 7159 - "Tax on Sales, Use, and Other Transactions: Repeals exemptions for memberships to physical fitness facilities owned or operated by licensed hospital, for specified rentals within premises of theater, for rental, lease, sublease, or license for use of skyboxes & luxury boxes, for ostrich feed, for newspapers, magazines, & newsletter subscriptions delivered by mail, for repair & maintenance labor charges for qualified aircraft, & for sales or leases of qualified aircraft"
