Perry's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
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.
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.
Improve access to quality, affordable health care
Help small businesses offer affordable health insurance
Support the Children’s Healthcare 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
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 SeniorsStrengthen laws that target those attempting to take advantage of vulnerable seniors
