|Elections and appointments|
|Last election||November 4, 2014|
Brausch's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "We need public education in this country. I am deeply concerned about the future of our kids' education."
Small Business Help
- Excerpt: "Small businesses need help to succeed because they are the job creation engines for our small towns. Our current state government has done a great job helping large corporations but small businesses with 2, 10 and 25 employees are what keep our small towns alive and lively."
Funding Infrastructure and the Gas Tax
- Excerpt: "I support raising the gas tax – say a penny a year. That way, both residents and tourists help bear the cost of paying for road repairs."
- Excerpt: "It is a human right to love and be loved. Having friends who are gay and lesbian, I know that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are people who love and want to be loved, who want to live ordinary, productive lives just like everyone else."
- Excerpt: "People who hunt should be able to have the necessary weapons they need for hunting. However, I would hope that, for the safety of all citizens, that we make sure that everyone using a gun has been trained to use that gun and has a permit to use that weapon."
