Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

Economic Recovery

  • Excerpt: "Tim understands that you can't spend more than you bring in, and after slashing projected state spending to its lowest rate in recent memory, Minnesota is finally on the road to economic recovery."

Reducing Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "Two years ago, Minnesota voters sent a message to incoming state lawmakers and told them to get state government overspending under control and force it to live within its means."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Tim understands jobs have to be Minnesota's top priority. Not only does this include policies that put more people to work, but it also includes provisions that encourage private sector businesses to expand and relocate in our state."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Common sense tells Tim that if more Minnesotans are working, they will be paying more income taxes and buying more goods - which would increase sales tax collections at the state level."

Education

  • Excerpt: "As a former school board member and current Vice Chair of the Minnesota House Education Finance Committee, investing in our children is one of Tim's top priorities."
