Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Anderson's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Natural Resources

  • Excerpt:"We need to get our lands released from the Federal Government so that our resources can be used for Education and other needs of the economy while at the same time providing a multitude of jobs."

Creating Better Jobs

  • Excerpt:"Economic growth does not come from more government spending. Eliminating crippling regulations and taxes that hinder growth would act to stimulate both new and existing businesses."

Education

  • Excerpt:"It is not acceptable for me to have my children and grandchildren taught the 'morality' of gay marriage and abortion. Mandating local control of our schools and elimination of the federal dollar 'sinkhole' would solve many of our education problems."

Protecting Public Lands

  • Excerpt:"I support the effect to get State control of the public lands that have been illegally held by the federal government since Utah statehood in 1896."
