Campaign themes


Perry listed his positions on his website:[2]

Property Taxes

Presently, our property taxes are based on valuations made every 6 years. I think these assessments need to be made more frequently to more accurately reflect market value.
I believe we need to place a 2% limit on property tax increases. There are too many instances in House District 3 where people are being taxed right out of their homes and off their property. Those especially vulnerable are older residents who survive on a fixed income.

Public Education

We need to understand that education is the bedrock upon which Democracy is built.
Let’s ensure a quality and accountable system of education at all levels that protects homeowners and small businesses from increases in property taxes.
Guarantee that research and development helps Montana’s businesses, workers and industries
Though we have a bully prevention program in place (OLWEUS) in our schools, we need to establish a state policy to address cyber bullying.

Health Care

Improve access to quality, affordable health care
Help small businesses offer affordable health insurance
Support the Children’s Health Care Insurance Program (CHIP)
Make prescription drugs affordable

Preserve Montana’s Outdoor Heritage

Guarantee access to public lands
Protect Montana’s hunting and fishing heritage
Protect our Second Amendment rights
Preserve and protect our stream access laws

Build A Secure Energy Future

Pursue additional clean and renewable energy resources that create jobs
Promote energy conservation in government, schools, universities and homes
Enact sensible energy policies that provide affordable, reliable energy to all consumers, small business owners, farmers and ranchers

Fiscal Responsibility

Living within our means and setting money aside for the future
Manage taxpayer money the same way hard-working Montanans handle their household finances

Protect Our Seniors

Strengthen laws that target those attempting to take advantage of vulnerable seniors
