Issues

Campaign themes

Zikmund's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Keeping Your Taxes Low

  • Excerpt: " South Dakota has thrived because of our low tax, business friendly environment. Higher taxes mean more money out of your pocket. I support keeping taxes low to encourage businesses to create jobs. Low taxes provide an incentive for businesses to start and relocate in South Dakota."

Economic Development and Workforce Development

Investing in a World Class Education System

  • Excerpt: "I support education and improving opportunities for K-12 programs and training in technical fields. Education opens doors and opportunity in life. I want to ensure our children have a bright future where they are adequately equipped with a knowledgeable background and skill set. Education is a key component to ensure we can compete in the regional and global economy."

Holding the Line on Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "It’s important to take a common sense, conservative approach to spending. Budgets are about priorities which must be set and then funded according the money we have. I’ve managed budgets and had to make payroll. Just like a family budget, our state must live within our means. I support finding efficiencies and eliminating unnecessary spending. Those dollars should be redirected to programs that work."
