Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Parkin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

We need to focus on basic, pragmatic issues.

  • Excerpt: "The fact is that Utah needs to work on education, jobs, and fundamental services that have begun to deteriorate over the past decade. That's my focus--make the core stuff work better."

Government is about the people

  • Excerpt: "I believe in the core idea that a legislature that governs least, governs best. The focus should be on identifying and addressing real problems, and eliminating outdated or unnecessary legislation."

Communication and transparency

  • Excerpt: "I can't promise to please everyone with every vote I cast in the legislature, but I can promise to make sure you know how and why I take a position, and I can promise to actively seek your voice and understanding of those issues."

It shouldn't be about personal benefits

  • Excerpt: "I consider public service an honor and duty, and I promise to work for the interests of all, not of a particular faction or industry. "
