Campaign themes


Flickner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Border Security
Excerpt: "I want real border security... I believe we need a stronger military presence and increased Border Patrol to deter the drug cartels and human smuggling."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "People are struggling. Most of the people I've met who have jobs consider themselves fortunate. Many, however, are either under-employed or struggling to find jobs."
  • Education
Excerpt: "The first thing we need to do is get a Superintendent of Schools who was actually an educator in the public school system... The second thing we need to do is get these teachers back to work and get these class sizes down to manageable levels of 25 students per teacher or less."
  • Green Technology
Excerpt: "As a former Democratic, I was taught that we were stewards of the planet, and as such, have a responsibility to its care."
  • Transportation
Excerpt: "One solution is mono-rail. For a little more than what it cost to put in the Light Rail -- and in far less time -- we could have Arrowhead to Desert Ridge covered, and without shutting down one single business."
  • Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "SB1070 didn't address the source of the problem. It focuses on the wrong group of people. Yes, we have a problem with people coming over, but we wouldn't have an illegal immigration problem were it not for the illegal EMPLOYER problem."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "I find it interesting that Democrats are associated with high taxes when our Democratic leadership, which has been in control of our Legislature for the past 44 years, has raised taxes on small businesses and the middle class while giving gross tax breaks and giveaways to large corporations that have no vested interest in Arizona."[1]
