Issues

Campaign themes

2012

MacEwen's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "This district has not had any leadership when it comes to promoting, retaining, or attracting businesses. We need to look at the fairness of the uniform application of the B & O Tax, changing state law so that local jurisdictions can create TIF districts, and elect people that create and not pontificate."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Throwing money at the problem does not equate to success for students. Competition in the form of charter schools, vouchers, and measurable results for students, teachers, and administrators will be a good start."
  • Reform State Government
Excerpt: "If it can be done at the same quality level or better at a lower price outside the state walls of Olympia, then the state should not be involved.[ ]With Republican leadership in the State House we can balance the budget on time without special session after special session."
