Campaign themes


Nichols' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "I fully support Senator Jason Carter’s plan to put education at the forefront of our budget by creating a separate education budget and funding that first. By doing this, we are making education a priority, letting our children know that they come first, and keeping the money of our schools out of the hands of politics and back room deal making."

Business And Jobs

  • Excerpt: " People should be able to afford to live in comfort, not because they are entitled, but because they are hard workers who have earned the opportunity to reward themselves. Minimum wage will always equal a minimum economy, but bringing good jobs to the district will allow the economy to grow and provide the opportunity for all of us to prosper."


  • Excerpt: "Georgia is missing out on $31 billion in federal money for the state’s health care system over the next 10 years because the Governor has turned his back on the very people he is supposed to represent. Furthermore, the current leadership has offered NO workable solutions. However, one solution would be to bring more doctors to the area which will drive down medical costs and promote competition. If Kentucky can do it, so can we."

Election Reform

  • Excerpt: " From corruption in the redistricting process to wasted taxpayer dollars in run-off elections, the real question voters need to ask is who is in cahoots with who? Voters have no idea who will address and who they can trust with their concerns about the state of their communities. This is a problem. This is why we need fundamental election reform."


  • Excerpt: "We need to be improving our sidewalks and bike lanes which promote healthier lifestyles. Why don’t we already have electric car plug-in stations or light rail? With real solutions, not only will we ease the burden on our roads, we will also decrease the commute for families allowing us to spend more time with each other, ease our wallets at the gas pump, and promote healthier lifestyles that increase the quality of life in Henry County."
