Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Queen listed the following issues on his campaign website:[2]

  • Education
Excerpt: "I agree with Colorado voters who soundly rejected the 'business as usual' approach of Amendment 66."
  • Economy
Excerpt: "By taking the shackles of over-regulation away, our neighbors in North Dakota now enjoy 2% unemployment and our friends in Wisconsin are looking at over $1 billion in tax relief from their roaring economy. Colorado should not be taking a back seat to North Dakota and Wisconsin in this recovery."
  • Individual rights
Excerpt: "In many instances, as with Obamacare, government tries to fix a problem but ends up intruding on our lives and makes things worse by telling us what to do and backing it up with government force. I trust you, my fellow citizens, to make your own decisions."
