Campaign themes

Stillwell's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "If we want our economy to grow, and the jobs created to be high paying jobs, we need to make sure Texas has a highly educated workforce. To make sure of this, we must restore full funding for education, while demanding accountability and results from our teachers. We must go beyond the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic to fully develop future leaders."

Job Growth and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "A common sense, balanced approach to tax policy and regulation is essential. Our economy must continue to grow and our citizens continue to build a more stable financial future. To that end, existing loopholes, tax breaks, and environmental safeguards should be carefully examined."

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "Attracting new businesses to our region, not to mention nurturing local ones, requires investment from the state in the infrastructure that supports them. We need to look beyond toll roads. Central Texas needs a comprehensive, multi-modal transportation plan that will prepare us for future growth."
