Issues

Campaign themes

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

Economy

  • Excerpt: "In this time of financial turmoil and hardship, elected officials MUST make it a priority to help the citizens of Kansas. Our state has a spending problem, not a revenue problem."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Obamacare is not only a violation of the 1st Amendment and its guarantee of the separation between church and state, but a mandated tax that citizens of Kansas should not have to pay."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe the state wastes too much money on unnecessary employees, such as classroom supervisors, who are paid to sit in classes and monitor the performance of teachers."

Abortion

  • Excerpt: "Abortion should be 100% illegal in the state of Kansas. No funds should be allocated to organizations or companies that support and/or perform abortions."

Religion

  • Excerpt: "I support the right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, guaranteed to citizens in Section 7 of the Kansas Bill of Rights. I will fight to protect the religious freedoms of every person, regardless of religious affiliation."
