Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Hare's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Campaign Finance
Excerpt: "Our political system has been corrupted by lobbyist influence. Many legislators have failed to remember that we serve the people in our district first and foremost. I am proud to have signed the "VOLUNTARY ACCEPTANCE OF CAMPAIGN SPENDING LIMITS." This limits my ability to raise funds for my campaign to individuals."
  • Jobs / Taxes /Regulations
Excerpt: "The state of Colorado is an amazing place to live, in particular Weld County. In Weld County, we are blessed with low local taxes and bountiful natural resources. Unfortunately, burdensome regulations, high state taxes, and extraordinary energy costs are providing headwinds to job growth in our County and State. Government doesn't create jobs, but creates a good or bad environment for businesses as they consider where to invest in and locate their business"
  • National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
Excerpt: "I applaud the three counties, including Weld County, that have adopted Resolutions opposing the 'indefinite detention' of U.S. citizens as per section 1021 of this act. Our campaign is actively encouraging other counties and cities to pass similar legislation and is seeking a Representative and/or Senator in the Colorado Assembly to introduce this Resolution for adoption by the State of Colorado. "
  • Economy / Spending
Excerpt: "The State of Colorado and our Nation is struggling in one of the most severe recessions in history. Much of this was caused by poor banking regulations and a housing industry that grew out of control, leading to a massive bursting of the housing bubble. Add to this, manufacturing and service jobs have been shipped overseas for the past 25 years."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "Energy costs in Weld County and in the state are too high and are an undue burden on our families and businesses. This is primarily the result of regulations that force utilities to use less cost-effective sources such as wind and solar. While I encourage protecting the environment, the costs of providing green energy cannot be borne by our families and businesses. Alternative forms of energy must be able to stand on their own and should not have to be subsidized by the government. "
