Osmek's website highlights the following campaign themes:
It's about the spending
- Excerpt:" Creating inventive ways to fund itself is not a problem for State Government. We have the money. The problem is HOW MUCH we SPEND, and HOW we spend it."
Transportation needs real solutions… not 19th century ones
- Excerpt:"Investing in roads and bridges, not light rail, brings immediate benefits."
Education: Less micro-management and more local control
- Excerpt:"Even with our limited resources, we demand a world-class education for our children. We can do better with what we have if we are smarter in our approach to education."
We do need government … but smaller is better
- Excerpt:"We do need a government to handle public safety, courts, snow plowing roads, and many other tasks that do make sense for government to do. The problem is that we could do just as well with a much SMALLER level of government, both in terms of its size and intrusiveness into our lives."
At the beginning of the 2013 legislative session, Osmek served on the following committees:
