Issues

Campaign Themes

In a personal submission to Ballotpedia, Amorose highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • "I strongly believe in the concepts contained in our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Hence, I am an advocate for limited government, republican in form and federalist in structure. I believe in strict constructionism, as government exists to secure our natural, unalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe governments should exercise fiscal restraint on behalf of its taxpayers, including businesses, protect property rights of all residents and limit the intrusions into the lives of residents, all within the framework of our state constitution and the U.S. Constitution."
  • "As a lifelong Michigan resident of 55 years, I hearken back to a day when the Motor City dominated the auto industry, and the auto industry dominated the economy. Today, much of our economy in our state, and in our nation is tremendously different. Government can and should be the tool to create an environment conducive to the growth of business, which will then result in greater employment for its residents."
