Issues

Campaign themes

Kern's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & The Economy

Out of Control Spending

  • Excerpt:"I commit to you that I will take the same attitude with your money as I do my own. My parents taught me the value of a dollar and I know how hard it is to earn it."

Return to a Citizen Legislature

  • Excerpt:"I don’t believe our Founding Fathers ever intended for there to be career politicians. I believe they envisioned a citizen legislature where everyone would have an opportunity to serve, including such as the baker, the blacksmith, the homemaker, the farmer, and the businessman."
