Campaign themes


Lawrence's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Economy
Excerpt: "Economic growth and job creation needs to be a top priority. Small businesses are the engine that drives our economy. Colorado must cut taxes, end unnecessary regulatory burdens on business, provide access to credit for small business, and focus our education resources on math, science, engineering and technology."
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "The Second Amendment is very clear and unequivocal regarding our right to keep and bear arms. As a gun owner myself, I recognize that responsible gun ownership is a fundamental right that must not be infringed upon."
  • Pro-Life
Excerpt: "Each life is precious and should be protected. The first unalienable right delineated in the Declaration of Independence asserts the inherent dignity and sanctity of all human life and affirms that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life. I oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion and will not fund organizations which advocate it. "
  • Education
Excerpt: "The efforts of the Douglas County School Board in creating the Choice Scholarships, recognizing that educating our children is not a "one size fits all" endeavor should be a model for Colorado. Empowering parents with choices for the education of their children should always be paramount. We should focus our educational resources on math, science, engineering and technology, while also embracing those students who choose to pursue careers outside of the college track."
  • Property Rights
Excerpt: "Ownership of private property is one of the most important aspects of our great country. At the center of a free economy is the right of citizens to be secure in their property. Every person has the right to acquire, own, use, possess, enjoy, and dispose of private property."
