Campaign themes


Drummond's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "That is the number one problem right now. There are not enough jobs to go around. The nation and this area are suffering for that. We need to attract more jobs to this area in a way that will benefit all that live here, in other words, give them a job. If we have more jobs and more people working, then we are going to have a stronger economy as a whole. "
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "I want to make sure that OUR Government is in order. If we as taxpayers, home owners and renters have to make sure everything is paid for, then the Government has to as well. I am not talking about the U.S. Government borrowing its way to payday, I am talking about going back to a time when there is a surplus."
  • The Economy
Excerpt: "You will notice that the three issues that I have touched on have all been dealing with the economy and its lack of growth. We need to see that people are able to safely travel though our area, and the only way to do that is with a strong and working rail, road, and seaway system. If we have those systems in place, then we can see strong job growth, not only in maintaining that system but with new jobs as well. With those jobs, you have people that pay taxes and those taxes, not debt, is what is needed to make the entire country prosper."
