Campaign themes


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

  • Economy
Excerpt: "The State cannot save or create jobs in the private sector. The states responsibility is to provide a friendly, pro- business environment that includes low taxes, responsible regulations and less red tape."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Provide a pro- business environment which includes low taxes for businesses, less government interference for start up businesses, reform or repeal of Colorado’s “Dirty Dozen” business regulations. John wants to propose legislation that will make Colorado a right to work state so workers can choose if they want to belong to a union or not."
  • Education
Excerpt: "John believes that choice and competition are the direction that our schools need to be heading. There needs to be more local control of the content. The schools job is to educate our students and it is the responsibility of the parents to raise their own children."
  • Government Accountability
Excerpt: "The tax money received by the state is the people’s money and that the Democrats have not been good stewards of the people’s money. Governor’s energy office and the fast tracks are just two examples of the state governments reckless and unaccountable spending."
  • Gun Rights
Excerpt: "John is a member of the NRA. Most laws and regulations make it hard for law abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights and these same laws and regulations are ineffective against criminals."
