The following quotes come from Jacobson's website:
Safe, Healthy Neighborhoods
I support keeping our neighborhoods safe and healthy for our families to thrive. As your representative I will work to keep dangerous criminals behind bars and away from our children and homes. We also need access to basic services such as police, fire fighters, and emergency medical services. These are basic needs every community relies on and I will strive to keep them strong and responsive.
Smart, Responsible Government
As the director of a 44 year old statewide organization, I understand the importance of sound financial management. We need to look at smarter and more efficient ways to spend our tax dollars. Everything we spend our government resources on should be looked at as an investment in the people who live and work here. I will also make certain those who use our state and drain our resources pay their fair share to ensure a sustainable future for our families.
Quality Education for our Children and the Future of our State
The greatest asset we have in this state is our children. To ensure the future for our children we must ensure they have access to the best education. We must recruit and retain the best teachers and maintain the best environment for our children to learn and grow. To attract good jobs we need a talented and educated workforce.
Good Paying Jobs and a Strong Economy
The future of our state and the well being of our citizens depend on a strong and vibrant economy. Every day I help hard working folks overcome the impacts of our sluggish economy and financial hardships. I am committed to building and supporting local Montana businesses to provide quality jobs for our community. Small business accounts for 70% of private sector employment in the state and we must focus our resources on their growth and security before we chase after speculative projects.
Access to Our Public Land and Water
As an avid outdoorsman, I love and respect the land that makes Montana a great place to live. Hunting, fishing, and accessing our back country is part of our heritage and an important part of our lives. Unfortunately, every year rich landowners and out of state special interests try and lock Montanans out of state and federal lands. In the last session they even tried to reclassify rivers and streams as ditches to keep local anglers out. I am committed to keeping our land accessible and open for all Montanans to enjoy.
Responsible, Productive Management of Our Natural Resources
Clean air and open spaces are critical to the lives of all of us and we have a responsibility to ensure that our land and waters are kept pristine. Too often large corporations and environments groups try to control the Montana landscape. As your representative, I will ensure the people who live here have a voice. I believe we need a balanced approach that preserves and protects our land and resources while providing economic opportunity and jobs.
