Issues

Campaign themes

Millis' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & The Economy

  • "The environment for job creation only thrives with a low tax burden. Low taxes at the gas pump, low personal income tax, and low corporate income tax."
  • "Lowering the tax burden requires government to focus on its constitutional responsibilities and essential roles."
  • "Once government has the proper perspective of its role, then spending can be cut from those areas outside of the government’s responsibility. This approach will lead to the ability to lower the tax burden for all citizens of this State and initiate economic growth."

Spending

  • "We cannot and should not continue to fund agencies and programs that are not clearly within the responsibility of State government. If a program is not a clear responsibility then legislators must cut or work to sunset the program."
  • "We must work to reduce spending within the role of government. Legislators must work towards program efficiency and consolidation of departments and agencies. We cannot afford redundant programs, overlapping agencies, and overstaffed departments."

Education

  • "Charter Schools have a bit more freedom than a traditional public school and are therefore able to innovate in order to benefit the citizens they serve."
  • "Since Charter Schools are run like a business that provides education, there is greater incentive and motivation for performance."
  • "In an effort to promote choice for the parent and encourage competition, I support the idea of an education tax credit."
