Riemer's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "Expand the Transitional Jobs Program. For two years, Wisconsin has run a successful Transitional Jobs Demonstration Project that has provided thousands of unemployed workers with transitional employment while they pursue permanent careers. The state has failed to find continued funding for this program and it will end soon. It is essential to save and strengthen this program."
- Excerpt: "To begin with, we need to restore fairness to the school aid formula. Educating the children of Milwaukee, West Allis, West Milwaukee and Greenfield is just as important as educating those who live in wealthier suburbs. What we spend to educate the K-12 students of the 7th Assembly District should not be less than the amount spent to educate similar groups of students anywhere else in Wisconsin. I will fight for an equitable formula for school aid so that all of our children can receive a first-class education, no matter what school a student attends."
- Excerpt: "That's why I support getting rid of tax loopholes for special interests. To ease the tax burden on the middle class and small business, the wealthy and big corporations should pay their fair share."
- Excerpt: "Allow BadgerCare to cover everyone up to 133% of the poverty line."
Riemer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
