Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Bumgardner's campaign website highlights the following issues:[1]

Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt:"Dana will work hard to pass pro-business legislation in Raleigh. He believes in order to recover lost jobs, we have to support our small businesses because they are essential to economic growth. When government allows the private sector to work, the people of Gaston County and North Carolina will be free to bring our economy back."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt:"Dana will oppose all tax increases and all wasteful spending. He will work to set budget priorities and fund critical state services first. Additionally, Dana will support the Taxpayer Protection Act which limits government spending to population growth plus inflation."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Dana Bumgardner will support legislation which sends tax dollars to fund the classroom and not a wasteful bureaucracy. When money is sent directly to the classroom and sidesteps administrations, it does more good for the child."

Transportation

  • Excerpt:"Dana is against the proposed toll road, the Garden Parkway, which will funnel money away from already needed repairs to Gaston County’s roads and bridges. He believes this money could be better spent on widening I-85, revamping the I-85, US-321 junction and widening the Dallas-Cherryville Highway."
