Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt:"I believe that if we allow the free market to regulate itself by keeping government out of the economy as much as possible it will lead to unprecedented growth and job opportunities. In Austin, I will be a voice fighting to unleash the full potential of this state and our economy by pulling government out of the way of small business and entrepreneurs who are the true job and wealth creators."

Family Values

  • Excerpt:"Abortion must be stopped and I will have a 100% pro-life voting record as your State Representative. I believe marriage is between a man, a woman and God. These are fundamental principles and are essential in maintaining strong families in our state."

Limited Government

  • Excerpt:"Republicans we must draw a line in the sand and say no more. Now is the time to push back the liberal agenda and work to shrink government and the budget. I intend to go to Austin to fight for limited government and a return to the constitutional role of governance."
