Issues

Campaign themes

Clough's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt:"I believe we need to review all tax loopholes and sunset those that aren’t helping our economy."

Improving Our Business Climate

  • Excerpt:"We should not let the state balance the budget on the backs of local government by overloading our local governments with unnecessary burdens. I will work closely with local cities and counties to ensure our regulations are streamlined and clear."

Championing Our Public Schools

  • Excerpt:"Our public schools currently don’t graduate 25% of their students. We need to reduce our dropout rate; recruit and retrain quality teachers; and set higher standards for math and science."

Reducing Gang Violence

  • Excerpt:"We need to give our law enforcement community the tools they need to reduce this activity in our neighborhoods. This means prioritizing funding for gang violence reduction, improving after-school programs and working with institutions that strengthen our families."
