Issues

Campaign themes

2012

LeDoux's website listed the following three issues:

  • Education
Excerpt: "Classroom size is thus particularly critical in the early years. I remember my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Wilhelm, sitting with a very small group of students teaching us to read. I am concerned that elementary school teachers have classes so large that they are not able to devote sufficient time to individual students."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "One of the methods of dealing with the high cost of heating our homes is by improving their energy efficiency."
  • Permanent Fund Dividend
Excerpt: "As your legislator I will continue to resist any efforts to use permanent fund resources for any purpose other than dividends."[2]
