What Sandy Believes in and Will Work for

Economic Conservatism and Fiscal Responsibility
Create jobs by establishing a favorable climate for economic growth and opportunity through limited government by:
  • Cut taxes – so businesses will want to expand and jobs will be created and to help families and those on fixed incomes keep more of their own hard-earned money – supported property tax reform and the flat tax option for Iowa income tax and the Home Base Iowa Act to exempt veterans’ military pensions from state income tax 
  • Balance the budget – live responsibly like we in our households have to do – spend no more than we take in 
  • Cut regulation – maintain liberty and allow business owners and farmers to expand and create jobs
  • Rein in spending – let future generations be debt-free – let’s not depend so much on government – don’t use one-time use funds for ongoing expenses 
  • Uphold Right to Work – no worker should be forced to join a union or pay their dues 
Education 
  • Greater local control of schools – decentralize it - let parents, school boards, teachers, and administrators, handle it – they are capable – let’s support them – unhook Iowa from the Common Core system of control over our schools 
  • Cut regulations – keep freedom and stop strangling school districts and school teachers – let the teachers teach – cut the paperwork
  • Increase educational opportunities and innovations by expanding educational choices 
  • Promote parental involvement – shift more responsibility back on the parents where it belongs 
Pro-Life 
  • Defend the right to life for the unborn child
  • Support a Human Life amendment for the U.S. and Iowa Constitutions/Life-at-Conception bill – supported banning abortion by telemedicine
  • Supported a ban on the sale of aborted baby body parts
  • No public funding for abortion or those who commit abortion

 Pro-Traditional Marriage
  • Only marriage between one man and one woman should be valid or recognized in the U.S. or in Iowa
  • Supported letting the people vote on the Iowa Marriage Amendment 
 2nd Amendment Rights
  • The people’s right to keep and bear arms is not to be infringed
  • Expand liberty of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves – supported a “2nd Amendment” to the Iowa Constitution/Stand Your Ground/Constitutional Carry bills 
Religious Liberty
  • Protect and reinforce the people’s 1st Amendment right to “free exercise” in matters of religious faith 
Agriculture
  • Lifeblood of Iowa’s economy – let’s support it – get government out of the way
  • On the federal level, everyone “participates” in cut backs, not just farmers
