Issues

Campaign themes

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

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt:"Rekha will work for legislation that gives entrepreneurs incentives to establish businesses and create jobs in the 68th District. She will also work for legislation that provides funding for district improvements, such as infrastructure, that will help and benefit constituents."

Property Taxes for Seniors

  • Excerpt:"While the prices of everything around us are going up and up, including property taxes, seniors on fixed incomes are falling farther and farther behind. They need some relief, and in Jefferson City, Rekha will work to provide it."

North St. Louis County Image

  • Excerpt:"As the 68th District State Representative, Rekha will work to promote and improve the image of North County, to encourage people from other counties and cities, and other parts of this county, to come to our beautiful City of Florissant - which will help our economy, businesses, and job creation."

Low Taxes, Smaller Government

  • Excerpt:"Rekha would like to replace the state income tax with a state sales tax. Also, she does not support taxes for the sake of regulating personal behavior."

Obamacare
