|Minnesota House of Representatives District 25B|
Valeriano's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"I am concerned about the assaults on the Bill of Rights that have taken place very rapidly within the last few years. Too many laws have been enacted that have violated numerous rights and more continue to be envisioned."
Job Creation and Growth
- Excerpt:"No matter what type of rhetoric is used to condemn the promotion of job creation, we must be committed to pushing on and ensuring that Minnesota continues the process of improving its dismal business climate."
Educational Choice and Accountability
- Excerpt:"Our children deserve the best education we can provide. No single entity should have a ‘corner on the market’ in the provision of knowledge. Parents and children have a right to many choices with no fear of reprisal or interference."
Right of Conscience
- Excerpt:"Choosing to enter the healthcare field, in any role, should not automatically nullify an individual’s right of conscience. While patients have the right to make decisions on personal healthcare, no person’s rights should interfere with or trump another’s, regardless of any career choice made."
- Excerpt:"We must ask the fundamental question: who should make health care decisions, individuals and physicians or bureaucrats and legislators? We must also ask why many of our elected state leaders wish to cede their responsibilities to the federal government."
