Lynch's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"If we are to prevent our state from falling into the same downward economic spiral as other industrial states, such as Michigan, we must make wholesale changes on two critical issues: taxes and state government restructuring. We must ecognize that government does not create jobs. In fact 60% to 70% of all new jobs are created by small business. The state must create an environment where small business can grow and prosper."
- Excerpt:"It is no mystery that as the Ohio tax burden has grown, the Ohio economy has shrunk! This high level of taxation keeps businesses from moving to the Buckeye State. Sadly this in turn drives our college graduates to other states in search of jobs. A recent survey noted that 60% of recent graduates planned to leave Ohio to pursue their career! We simply cannot afford such a “brain drain”."
- Excerpt:"We must cut the state budget enough to begin actually eliminating the state income tax. Deep cuts in the state’s bureaucracy, such as Ohio’s state Medicaid system, which is 40% costlier than the national average, are not unrealistic. By targeting these spending excesses, our legislature could reduce the state budget to the point where a state income tax would be unnecessary."
Right To Life
- Excerpt:"There are two Bills working their way through the legislature which could dramatically reduce abortions in Ohio. Either of these “Heartbeat” Bills would give Ohio among the strictest abortion laws in the United States and save thousands of lives of the unborn. Sadly, these bills have become bogged down in the legislature. If elected, I am committed to carrying the moral and political fight forward to protect these most innocent of lives!"
