Campaign themes

Phillips' website lists the following issues:

  • Promote Job Creation
Excerpt: "I believe the role of government is to create a “pro-business atmosphere.” Therefore, I will work to create an environment where successful businesses can create more jobs!"
  • Limit Government Spending
Excerpt: "I will work to increase transparency in the budget and the budget process for legislators and citizens to be able to compare budgets from year to year and across departments. We need zero-based budgeting, so that costs and programs are justified with each budget and not automatically assumed to need to be increased."
  • Solve Transportation Problems
Excerpt: "Transportation cannot be solved by dumping more money into the problem. Talented and innovative government, corporate, non-profit, and citizen groups must come together to reach a reasonable consensus on how to solve transportation issues, rather than allowing political partisanship to corrupt the dialogue."
  • Improve Education
Excerpt: "At the state level we need to work for fair distribution of state education funds. But there is always room for improvement, and improvement in education does not have to cost more."


Phillips and her husband, Chris, have two daughters.
