Candidate for
California State Assembly District 61
Campaign website
Joe Ludwig was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 61 of the California State Assembly.


Campaign themes


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

  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Californians suffer from taxes that are too high, be they income taxes, sales taxes, and taxes wrongly labeled as "fees." That is why I support a low, flat-rate income tax that contains allowances which protect middle-class families. I will also fight to preserve Proposition 13."
  • Spending
Excerpt: "State government taxes so much because it spends too much. That is why I support solutions such as efforts to combine agencies and departments that have similar functions, like the Franchise Tax Board and Board of Equalization. By taking simple, common-sense steps, we can make government smaller, more effective, and less costly."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Nowhere do the problems our government faces today make themselves more apparent than in our educational system. Bloated bureaucracies that inhibit innovation, excessive regulations that stifle true learning and creative thinking, and outdated operations that waste our tax dollars have all become norms in our schools. "
  • Law Enforcement
Excerpt: "If for no other reason, government exists to keep us safe. That is why I support measures such as "three strikes" and the death penalty. I believe the solution to prison overcrowding is to build more prisons, not to release violent felons back into our communities."
  • Reforming Government
Excerpt: "Much has been made about how state government works-or rather how it does not work. That's why I support a two-year budget cycle, so that the Legislature can focus on long-term solutions for California's fiscal troubles."
