Campaign themes

The following issues of concern are listed on Hanson's website:

  • Less Spending and Waste - "Our Wisconsin lawmakers need to clearly identify where the problem areas are in the budget and work with the constituents to find solutions."
  • Job Creation - "If we can find ways to deregulate, it will allow small businesses to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit. "
  • Health care - "Personal accountability through changes in behavior is the key to controlling healthcare costs."
  • Well City Collaborative - "WELCOA provides the nationally recognized structured set of ‘7 Benchmarks’ to achieve the high standards and designation of a Well Workplace."
  • Education - "The greatest costs in education are labor and benefits. To facilitate positive change for our educators and children, there needs to be productive dialogue with the Unions, Schools Board Administrators and Government."[6][7]
