Issues

Campaign themes

2013

Ziemba's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

  • Lower taxes:
Excerpt: "Stephanie Ziemba is running to restore fiscal sanity to the State Assembly. She will not vote for any increases in taxes, fees or any backdoor method that politicians utilize to drive a wedge between taxpayers and their hard earned income."
  • Improve education:
Excerpt: "Gutting much of the middle management in school districts along with incentivizing teacher performance are two objectives that can improve test scores in the classroom and save taxpayers much needed revenue. Tenure must be reformed to act like its private sector counterparts and the funding formula for subsidizing abbott districts has to be radically changed or dismantled so residents in non-abbott districts can keep more of their property tax dollars in district for their children rather than someone else's."
  • Accountability:
Excerpt: "State government needs an updated, streamlined and user friendly system for residents to pull information about laws on the books, legislation up for debate, voting records, political contributions, zoning ordinances, etc."
  • The Economy:
Excerpt: "Regulations on small business have to be relaxed to allow businesses to thrive. The 19th District needs its own task force to focus on job creation within our communities. The task force would consist of business owners and community leaders within the district."
  • Civil liberties:
Excerpt: "We have to ensure that checks and balances are put in place to prevent the warrentless monitoring and surveillance of innocent citizens."
  • Veterans:
Excerpt: "Although this is generally a federal issue, the state government can help subsidize benefits received by veterans. We can not do nothing as many current vets are suffering and a new wave of vets are on their way home from conflicts in the Middle East."
