Campaign Themes

Farrington's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Job Creation

  • Excerpt:"Through a tax code and regulatory system that doesn't pick winners and losers - but allows all to invest, compete and hire."

Focus On Education

  • Excerpt:"This doesn't just mean throwing money at the problem (though proper funding is imperative), it means setting up K-12 to recognize the importance of an education directed toward skilled trades as well as a four year degree."


  • Excerpt:"My perspective is that government should not be all things to all people. The role of governments should be focused on public safety, education, caring for the most unfortunate in society and infrastructure."
