Campaign themes

Brown's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Cut wasteful spending

Lower taxes

  • Excerpt:"Brian believes that true economic development can only be created through an environment where private citizens and business are able to retain as much of their hard earned money as possible and are able to reinvest in our local communities through consumer spending and job creation."

Improve economic environment for private sector job creation

  • Excerpt:"Brian believes that with lower taxes, smaller government and less regulations we can continue to make North Carolina a better place to create new jobs and recruit businesses looking to relocate."

Less government and more freedom

  • Excerpt:"Brian believes strongly that a government with fewer regulations and rules that hinder business growth and development is a government that understands economic development."

Pro-life

  • Excerpt:"Brian is here today due to a very strong mother and her anti-abortion values."

Preservation of traditional marriage

  • Excerpt:"Brian believes strongly that marriage is and should always remain defined as a union between one man and one women."
