Campaign themes

2012

Hood's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Economy

  • Excerpt: "As an economics major, I have an understanding of what works and what doesn’t work. In my four terms in the Ohio Legislature, I have opposed every effort to raise taxes. If government would return to Ronald Reagan’s philosophy of spending less while simultaneously reducing the tax burden, the economy would grow."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We must have the courage to fix the tax and regulatory structure in Ohio to make us more competitive to our neighboring states, including Indiana. Job creators will overlook Ohio when deciding where to locate their facilities. In order to bring jobs to our district, we must be competitive with other states."

Life

  • Excerpt: "I am proud to be 100% pro-life and always have been. I have exercised my convictions by working to move forward legislative efforts to protect life from the moment of fertilization."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "As your Representative, I guarantee I will not support any law that will infringe upon the rights of legal, law-abiding Ohioans to own or use firearms to protect themselves, their families or their property."

Family Values

  • Excerpt: "As a husband and father of young children I am very concerned about government's intrusion into our families. The traditional family is the root of a stable society, and my pledge to you is that I will work to protect traditional marriage and the rights of the traditional family in all aspects of my job as your State Representative."
