Campaign themes


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

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "Government does not create jobs. It is government’s responsibility to create a healthy environment for job growth by reducing tax and regulatory burdens that are currently stifling Minnesota businesses."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "I will fight for lower taxes and fiscal responsibility in state spending by closely examining our government programs to eliminate fraud, abuse and duplicative services because government needs to live within its means."

World-Class Education

  • Excerpt: "I support policies and innovative ways to ensure that we can attract and retain the best teachers. I support school choice to give parents the flexibility to provide their children with the educational opportunities that work best for their families."

Affordable Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "However, with rising costs in health care, we need innovative reforms to promote a patient-centered, sustainable system that encourages marketplace competition. These reforms will make health care more affordable and accessible while ensuring that consumers remain in control of their own health care decisions."

Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."[5]


Wills received a score of 85% in the 2013 scorecard, ranking 38th out of all 134 Minnesota House of Representatives members.[6]
