Issues

Campaign themes

2011

Stroebel's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Walker Budget Repair Bill: "As a result of the prior administration, Wisconsin has a $137 million predicted shortfall this June 30th and a $3.6 billion shortfall in the next two year budget... Increasing taxes, especially in our current recessionary economy, would be devastating... A huge portion of our state’s budget pays for wages and benefits. Asking the recipients of these funds to pay 12.4% of their health care premium and contribute 5.8% of their salaries to their pensions are figures that are unheard of in the private sector, and more generous than even those of most federal employees. Walker's proposal continues to allow state employees to collectively bargain for wages, a privilege most federal employees do not have. Eliminating collective bargaining for benefits will again put us in line with most federal employees."
  • Jobs and the Economy: "Quality of life is related to jobs and the economy. All government action must be viewed through this prism. Government does not create jobs or wealth–this is the function of the private sector...Starting and running a successful business in the district for the last 24 years has provided me a firm foundation to apply common sense thinking and problem solving to the politics of Madison."
  • Government Spending: "Excessive government size and spending suffocates the private sector and depresses our economy. We must reduce spending, reduce taxes and reduce the size of government. Not taking steps now will limit the opportunity of future generations by burdening them with excessive debt."
  • Education: "All children have the right to a quality education. Teachers have a profound impact on the education of our youth. Therefore we must seek and retain only the best for these important jobs. Effective teachers must be rewarded and less effective teachers must improve or be replaced."
  • Second Amendment: "I am a firm believer that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental freedom. Individuals must retain this right to be considered a free society."
  • Pro-Life: "I am pro-life. I believe in protecting life from conception to natural death."
  • MATC: "A strong technical college system is vital to the economic success of our state... MATC’s governance is an appointed Board with no direct accountability to the taxpayer. Making the Board directly accountable to the taxpayer would further insure the focus on education, not employee compensation."

Controversies

Landlord tenant bill

Stroebel forwarded legislation in the Assembly that would reform the relationship between landlords and tenants and restrict the ability of localities to create their own disparate regulations. One provision eliminated in the bill requires landlords to register and record ownership information with the city. The Associated Press and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel interpreted this provision as directly benefiting Stroebel. Stroebel, who owns a building worth $635,500 in Milwaukee, released a statement noting that the new law would not unfairly directly benefit him relative to other landlords.[7] The law would also ease a landlord's authority to remove illegally parked vehicles, retain deposits, and kick out tenants as well as dispose of their property.[8] The bill passed the Assembly on a 57 to 37 vote, and as of August 12, 2013, had not been considered by the full Senate.[9] The legislation has been opposed by the Associated Students of Madison.[10]
