Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • What is the biggest problem facing Washington State?
Excerpt: "Our largest problem is the restructuring of our budget process in a way that provides a shock absorber for tough economic times. We must live within our means as a state and to do this will require fiscal courage. It starts with a commitment to save money when times are good and not grow programs just because budget dollars are available."
  • What does the 6th District need in a Representative?
Excerpt: "The 6th District needs a representative, who is a proven leader and has a track record of accountability and excellent results over an extended period of time. That is who I am; with successful careers in both serving my country and serving the children of our state."
  • The State has had too many Special Sessions costing taxpayers thousands of dollars. What would you do to correct this problem?
Excerpt: "We need to move away from a “party paralysis” mentality, where members of either party are afraid to accept a good idea from a member of the opposing party until we are in a crisis setting. The positions of both parties are well known long before a session starts. "
  • How would you create jobs?
Excerpt: "I would continue to look for ways to stimulate small business opportunities. Small Businesses are the economic engine that helps broaden our economic base."
  • How would you advocate for the 6th District?
Excerpt: "To make sure I clearly understood our needs I would work hard to be visible and available. My advocacy would match the newly defined 6th District, boundary taking into account the three communities on the West Plains, Airway Heights, Cheney and Medical Lake in addition to those residents who reside within Spokane."
