Campaign themes

2014

Ploof's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Education Funding
Excerpt: "With all of the uncertainty with our education funding, one of my solutions as your legislator would be find an alternative funding mechanism to remove the education funding from our property tax burden."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "We can bring in more revenue to the state without tax increases by legalizing Marijuana. It can bring in an estimated 50 to 100 million in tax dollars."
  • Second Amendement
Excerpt: "My priority is to preserve the second Amendment. Citizens must maintain their right to protect their family, home, and selves…We need to focus on keeping guns out of the hands of people who use their guns for criminal behavior, and I will enact the toughest laws for people who use or have used their gun for criminal behavior."[3]
