Issues

Campaign themes

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

Liberty

  • Excerpt:"I believe the issue of liberty or freedom from government is at the core of all decisions made in St Paul and Washington DC. Many of our politicians want to pass law as measure of accomplishment to show people they are working hard and earning your vote."

Citizen Politician

  • Excerpt:"In my first term, I will only take a salary equal to my property tax. My goal is to stand on my own while also serving you for small fee."

Voter ID

  • Excerpt:"I believe the state of Minnesota has some of loosest laws on voting in the country."

Public Unions

  • Excerpt:"Private sector unions fight with management over an equitable distribution of profits. Government unions negotiate with politicians over taxpayer money. These same Government Unions are responsible for very large contributions to these same politicians they are negotiating with. This conflict of interest is easy to spot out and should not be allowed."

Spending

  • Excerpt:"I can't stress this enough. Spending is a tax before it becomes a tax. At a state level we do not have the ability to print cash so we have to raise taxes if we decide to spend more."
