Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Woehr listed the following campaign themes on his campaign website:[2]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Our fine R-1 school class sizes could be smaller."
  • Drinking water
Excerpt: "Our tap water could be free from uranium contamination from the abandoned Cotter mine."
  • Marijuana
Excerpt: "Some fine-tuning of the laws resulting from cannabis legalization is needed."
  • Fracking
Excerpt: "My feeling is that the best way to fight fracking is to use less oil. Get a push mower. Ride a bike, not an ATV. Camp in a tent, not an RV. Sail, don't motorboat. Get a horse!"
  • Climate change
Excerpt: "'Global warming' is media buzz. 'Industrial civilization's effluents as an influence on climate change' is science. The former is misleading, as, for instance, melting icecaps on a warming planet can cause colder winters. 'Global warming' serves corporatist interests and their media boosters as a tool to deny established science. Educated voters will always vote with science, but be aware that government solutions to the crisis in climate change are often shell games arranged to conceal business as usual. Real change will come about when responsible individual citizens learn to use less energy."
