Issue positions

Pogge's official website states her positions on a number of issues, including:[3]

  • Improving Transportation: "We need to ensure that the Peninsula receives its fair share of transportation dollars. Those resources are vital if we are going to repair and build new roads, repair our bridges and solve our traffic problems."
  • Improving Education: "Brenda Pogge will work to see that 65% of education funding is spent in the classrooms to pay for books, computers and teachers salaries."
  • Reducing Wasteful Spending: "Government spending has more than doubled over the last 10 years and last year increased by 5%. We are now headed toward a $641 million budget shortfall. The answer is to eliminate wasteful spending not to raise taxes."
  • Defending Our Values: "Brenda will be a reliable vote for traditional values and pro-family legislation. She helped lead the effort to pass the Marriage Amendment which defined marriage as being between one man and one woman."

Committee assignments

2010-2012 committees:

  • HB 1734 Concealed handgun permits; amends various processes, procedures, and requirements for obtaining.
