Issues

Campaign themes

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

Jobs

  • Excerpt:"I believe we cannot continue to grow while making irresponsible cuts. I fully support the jobs bills that Governor Dayton has proposed, as well as tax incentives for business that create jobs in our state and job programs for our veterans. "

Education

  • Excerpt:"I believe Education needs to be put back onto our legislature's priority list. This includes taking definitive measures, such as closing corporate tax loopholes, to pay back the more than two BILLION dollars diverted from our public schools. "

Taxes

  • Excerpt:"Over the past two years, the Republican controlled legislature has put much of the tax burden on the middle class rather than asking the wealthiest Minnesotans to pay more in taxes."

Real Representation

  • Excerpt:"Constitutional amendments should not be used to circumvent the legislative process. Our Constitution should be reserved for giving our citizens rights - not taking them away."
