Campaign themes

2011

Flanary's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Jobs and Virginia’s Economy
Excerpt: "Stable government policies will promote a business friendly atmosphere, which must be centered on low taxes, providing businesses with tax incentives for job creation, reducing regulation that stifles growth, and promoting a fiscally responsible government that lives within its means and refrains from continuing to heavily tax businesses and individuals. "
  • Taxes and Government Spending
Excerpt: "Our government should be run more like a business – maximize capital by accomplishing more while spending less. Businesses must take into consideration the affects of market forces and must constantly work towards achieving the highest levels of efficiency."
  • Transportation
Excerpt: "Alleviating traffic and improving mobility throughout Northern Virginia is crucial if we continue to create — and retain — more jobs in Northern Virginia."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Every child must be provided with the opportunity to have the best possible education — one that is enjoyable, relevant and prepares him/her for higher education, a career and/or life. "
  • Life
Excerpt: "I strongly believe that our society has an obligation to protect human life, from conception to natural death."
  • Second Amendment
