Campaign themes


McCaughan's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Rational Spending
Excerpt: "We need to live within reasonable means. With the incumbent: Continued budget growth, spending is out of control, we appear to be taking from our children and grandchildren, stagnating opportunities and risking the future of the State as a great place to live or work."
  • Honorable Politicians
Excerpt: "Restore voter passed initiatives. With the incumbent: The Legislature went behind the backs of the citizens and suspended/revoked two citizen passed initiatives which would require a 2/3 vote of the people to increase taxes and therefore increase spending."
  • Cost Cutting
Excerpt: "Our B&O tax needs to be consistent with an attractive business environment to therefore increase jobs and state revenue. ...By some reports, WA is the 2nd highest state for business taxes."
  • Innovation
Excerpt: "Develop plans such as 'Energy Contracts' where private sector employers come to a government agency with a plan where the work performed is paid out of the saving."
