Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Education

  • Excerpt: "If I am privileged to serve as our next State Senator, I will introduce legislation allowing for Michigan to offer its parents an “Opportunity Credit” with which they could use to offset the cost of tuition in any school of their choice. This puts the power and responsibility of a proper education on those who know the child best, the parents."

Personal Income Tax

  • Excerpt: "I believe strongly the government’s involvement in people’s lives should be minimal. The personal income tax in Michigan is one of the greatest illustrations of the government over reaching into the citizen’s life, and it should be eliminated."

Corporate Welfare

  • Excerpt: "If I am elected to represent the 34th District in the State Senate, I will present legislation banning this type of highway robbery by our government and I will vote NO on any proposed use of tax dollars to further corporate welfare in our great state! "

Part Time Legislature

  • Excerpt: "I support this initiative because we need citizen legislators, not full time politicians representing the people of Michigan."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "If I am lucky enough to serve the 34thin Lansing I will strive to repeal Michigan Medicaid expansion laws and bring about a competitive insurance market."
