Campaign themes

2011

Stanley's 2011 special election Campaign site list's his campaign promises:

  • I will never vote to raise your taxes or user fees at any time.
  • I will fight to reduce state spending and the size of state government.
  • I will fight to protect our rural, conservative values & way of life here in the 19th State Senate district.
  • I will fight to keep the “19th the 19th” during this year of re-districting. Southern Campbell, Franklin, Pittsylvania counties & the City of Danville are the power in the south to counter the influence of Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads. We cannot split this senatorial district up as the democrats in the State Senate want.
  • I will fight to strengthen our immigration policy – I will ensure that our commonwealth will enforce the state law if the federal government will not.
  • I support the “Repeal Amendment,” and will be a stalwart in preserving the sovereignty of the Commonwealth of Virginia over the over-reaching power of the federal government.
  • I will always fight to protect human life as sacred, and will defend our citizen’s right to keep and bear arms under the 2nd amendment of our Constitution.
  • I will strictly adhere to the United States & Virginia Constitutions, as well as the Republican Creed.
  • I will fight to reduce taxes & and the crushing government regulations on small businesses in order to make the 19th a business-friendly area for new businesses to start, and existing businesses to expand and grow.
  • I will never vote for a bill that will raise our utility rates.
  • I will seek to lessen the grip of AEP on the rights of individual property owners around Smith Mountain and Leesville Lakes.
  • I will support Del. Kathy Byron’s bill to repeal the law that made HPV vaccinations mandatory for the daughters of Virginia parents.
