Candidates on the Issues

Agriculture & Food
America’s variety of food and beverages is as diverse as our population itself.  Agricultural and nutritional policies should promote affordable food and beverages that recognize an individual’s right to make his or her own choices.


Debt and Deficit
Every day, individuals, businesses, and state and local governments are required to make hard decisions regarding the management of their finances. Our federal government should begin to do the same. It is time for this nation to enact the spending and tax reforms necessary to stabilize our country’s debt, stimulate growth, and revive our economy.


Powering America’s future while maintaining and preserving natural resources will require increased efficiency, strong infrastructure, and an “all of the above” energy mix, including oil, gas, coal, nuclear, and renewable energy.

Good Governance
Good governance is an indeterminate term used in international development literature to describe how public institutions conduct public affairs and manage public resources.


Health care or healthcare is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in human beings.


A reliable infrastructure is the lynchpin of our daily lives and essential for an economy to thrive – from the roads, railways, waterways, and aviation systems that move people and freight to the telecommunications structures that make communications possible.

Taxes and Regulation
To support economic growth for individuals and businesses of all sizes, we need a simple, fair and more competitive tax code and regulatory system that fosters rather than inhibits innovation. As the health care law is put in place, it should remain flexible for employees and employers and focus on providing affordable, quality care.


We are intricately tied to other countries through family, traditions, and business. We need immigration reform and trade policies that support these ties and lead us back to prosperity with the talented workers and open, fair markets we need to succeed. 


Having the right skill set is necessary for finding and holding the right job. Strong schools, workforce training programs, and balanced labor policies encourage lifelong learning and help employees become productive participants in the workplace and in the growth of business.

Employee Voter Registration Week 2017

September 25-29, 2017

Employee Voter Registration Week is an effort to make a dent in the number of unregistered citizens across the country. During this week, companies and associations will join together in an effort to encourage voter registration among private sector employees. The initiative will not tell employees how to vote or who to vote for, but instead aims to serve as a resource to help employers educate their employees about the issues that are important to their industries and provide key deadlines, voter registration, and polling location information.
