Campaign themes


Chandler provided the following campaign themes to Ballotpedia:[1]

  • State funding
Excerpt: "I will introduce legislation (LOTTERY 3-3-3) to set up a state run lottery with revenue divided: 1/3 to fix our roads which are crumbling & falling apart--1/3 for education K thru Community College that are hurting--1/3 for essential government services which we depend upon. Some if not all state agencies are looking at large short falls in 2015 funds. Let's allow those who want to support our state government (roads, education, and other) by purchasing lottery tickets to do so. Better than having a few get rich from bingo operations--competition from honest state lottery hopefully will prevent/put bingo operations out of business."
  • Education
Excerpt: "As State Senator, I will block efforts to from new Northport School System. New Northport School System could be disastrous for the remaining Tuscaloosa County School System plus hurting the education of students in both systems."
