Campaign themes


Glimm's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Fiscal Responsibility / Lower Taxes

These are uncertain economic times. We all have a family budget and we know we can’t spend more than we take in. The state government should understand this concept. Fiscal responsibility will be my top priority with every piece of legislation I look at. After all, it’s our citizens' money, not the State’s money. We've all worked hard for it, and it should be spent wisely.

The Flathead needs jobs. Unemployment is at 8.5%. Too many workers have had to leave the Flathead over the last several years to make it. Small businesses are the life blood of our country. We need to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit, for people to start businesses that will grow and prosper. Montana needs to attract new industry. I will support legislation to make Montana and the Flathead friendly to businesses and attractive to new companies seeking to start or expand here.

Our children are the future of our state. I believe they need the best education we can give them and we need to have jobs here for them when they move into the workforce. As a product of 16 years of public education in Montana’s quality school system, I would like nothing better than for my kids to be able to stay here in our great State.

Quality Affordable Healthcare

We are all aware of the Health care reform mess at the national level; we have a responsibility to address this issue at the state level. One specific issue that has been avoided by Congress is tort reform. Texas has taken the lead with regard to frivolous malpractice suits; we must make positive reforms in Montana.
