Campaign themes

2012

Hintz's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Property tax protection - I was a member of a bi-partisan group of legislators, who hope to pass a bill, known as the Newark Bill, which closes a property tax loophole that had the potential to cause a massive property tax shift to individual and commercial taxpayers of up to $2 billion. Closing this loophole was a MAJOR priority of mine and I was proud to co-sponsor this important piece of legislation."
  • Education - "I have joined colleagues on a resolution that would require the legislature to address the K-12 education funding formula by the next state budget. For too long we have been pitting students against property tax payers. It is time to find a viable solution to make sure kids get the education they deserve."
  • Ethics and campaign reform - "Democrats and Republicans in the legislature worked together with the Governor to create an effective, non-partisan Government Accountability Board. The board is responsible for advising state government on ethics and election matters, reviewing, streamlining and enforcing current ethics and election and investigating possible ethics violations. I supported this legislation."
