Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Cozzens' website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "I am opposed to the federal Department of Education. Decisions regarding the education of our children are best made at the local level. I believe that our local teachers, parents and school boards should be the ones creating education standards not the federal government. We know what’s best for children in our community not the federal government."

Civil Rights

  • Excerpt: "I believe firmly in the civil rights safeguarded under the constitution. Too many of our rights have been infringed upon by an overreaching federal government who has been completely ignoring the constitution."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "I do not support amnesty, I support legal immigration and reforms to immigration that would make it not so cumbersome to legally immigrate while still maintaining strict requirements. Immigration is a vital component that helped found our country and continues to make it great."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I enjoy the right of being a gun owner and am a strong supporter and advocate for the 2nd and concealed carry. Thomas Jefferson said it best when he said “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”."

Pro Life

  • Excerpt: "I am 100% pro-life. I believe that life begins at conception. I firmly believe that abortion is taking the life of an innocent baby."
