Issues

Campaign themes

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

Jobs

  • Excerpt:"One of the keystones of having a strong state is ensuring that everyone who wants a job has an opportunity to get a job. We are a long way from ensuring this, but we are getting closer."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Education is the key to getting our economy back on track. Without a strong education system, our graduates won’t have the skills they need to fill the jobs that are available."

The Environment

  • Excerpt:"I am against letting corporations write their own permits that have to be approved by the State. It’s the equivalent of having the fox in charge of the hen house."

Protecting Rights

  • Excerpt:"I will work as hard today to protect the rights of those who are disadvantaged. Supporting the efforts to address the needs of homeless youth, who often are unable to defend themselves, is also very important to me."

Wedge Issues

  • Excerpt:"I do not support either of the proposed changes to the Constitution."
