Campaign themes

2012

The following quotes come from Woods' website:[1]

Environment and Natural Resources: "...As a legislator, I want to insure that corporations that profit from this state’s resources are held accountable for their actions. I want our state to be treated like a partner, not a piggy bank. Above all, I want to make sure that Montana remains the last best place for hunting, fishing and hiking for future generations."

Education: "...Not only is it good economic policy to support higher education, I feel that it’s the responsibility of the legislature to fund this institution so that a higher education remains affordable for Montanans who want to pursue a college degree. Along with supporting higher education it is critical that we support our K-12 system as well. Full funding and excellent teachers are critical to this state’s success. As a legislator I will focus on supporting all levels of education across this state as best I can."

Healthcare: "...If the federal government is going to make Montanans buy health insurance our state should consider administering a non-profit health insurance policy."

Corporations: "...I recognize that it’s not feasible or desirable to do away with corporations in this day and age. It is, however, sensible that corporations be subject to government oversight just as that government, in turn, must be responsive to the will of the people."

Reproductive Rights: "With our current system of legalized abortion, all beliefs concerning when life begins are accommodated. If you believe that abortion is wrong, you don’t have to have one. If you believe that abortion is immoral you are also free to convince, but not to coerce others to conform to your belief system. Citizens can do that on their own time and on their own dime, but it’s not fair to co-opt government or the health care system to push an agenda."
