Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Carmona's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Economic Growth, Budgeting, Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Increasing taxes on Texans is not an option. Likewise, fees disguised as taxes are also off the table. Texas has become an economic beacon by not imposing a state income tax, while also exercising fiscal responsibility when it comes to spending."

Parental Choice in Education

  • Excerpt: "I strongly support Parental Choice in Education. I believe choice and competition make our schools better and our communities stronger. Texas should offer parents Opportunity Scholarships so they can send their children to the schools they feel will best educate their children."

Community Empowerment

  • Excerpt: "Texas needs to do a better job of empowering communities. Texas is growing too big to be single-handedly managed by a state government. We always see in times of turmoil, that communities can act more quickly than the state or federal government. Whether it is a church, charity or neighborhood organization, local people are always “in the know” about how to best care for their communities."

Reduce Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Texas should eliminate property taxes for all property owners. It is time to reform the education funding method, which could be better accounted for via a consumption tax rather than the current funding formula."

Transparency

  • Excerpt: "As online technologies and tools like cloud-hosting get better and better, governments have started opening their books to the public. We need to encourage this trend to continue until we have complete transparency in state government."
