Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Moultrie's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Property Tax

  • Excerpt: "I have always felt that it is unjust for a person to work their entire life to pay off their home and legally own it, only to be treated as a mere tenant by virtue of having to pay property tax. Remember, Government does not own private property and has no moral financial claim to it. If elected I will work to trim government spending and reduce property taxes."

ID Theft

  • Excerpt: "It is estimated that the SSNs of 20,000 to 50,000 Utah children are being used by someone else. Most of these stolen IDs are being used by illegal immigrants to obtain jobs. These innocent children will contend with all the fraud, crime and bad credit that become attached to their SSN. I will work to put a stop to document fraud by requiring employers to use E-Verify (a free service) before hiring employees."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I want MORE teachers, better schools and MORE parental control. But we need to consider that after many decades of government control history has shown that public schools may not be the best way to attain those goals. In any case, I will work tirelessly to cut waste and increase efficiency in the public education system."

Vouchers

  • Excerpt: "I propose instead that parents who choose to withdraw their children from the public school system and educate them in another manner (i.e. private or home schooling) be given a tax rebate. In this way, there would be no traceability as to how those families spend this money and thus the state would gain no control over Private Schools. Of course, the parents who opted for this system would be morally obligated to use this money for their children's education, but I believe that most parents care a great deal about their children and would use this money appropriately."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "As a Life Time Membership holder in the NRA, I fully support an individual’s Constitutional right to bear arms. I believe our Police officers do a fine job, and should be commended, but they simply cannot be everywhere at once to protect each individual at all times. This being the case, individuals must bear some responsibility for their own safety and I believe that firearms are a prudent choice. I support Concealed Carry Laws and Open Carry Laws. Statistics show that when such freedoms are upheld violent crime decreases and individuals are safer."
