Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Moore's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Supporting our Veterans
Excerpt: "Our state must do what it can to help those veterans and their families. They have borne a heavy burden for us and we must meet our obligation to them."
  • Controlling Spending
Excerpt: "Our state government must live within its means, just as each household does. We cannot afford to waste tax dollars that are vitally needed for schools, transportation and social programs."
  • Education Is the Paramount Duty of the State
Excerpt: "The situation will continue to get worse as long as we don't consider education the "paramount duty" of state government -- as it says in our state constitution. Budget cuts have forced community colleges and universities to raise tuition rates, reducing the access to education."
