Robert Miklos's positions and views on the issues:
Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
Tuition - "Robert wants to roll back tuition rates and invest most of the states budget surplus into the education of our children - from elementary school to college. He wants to freeze tuition rates until we address both higher education funding and declining financial aid."

Utilities - "Deregulation took us from the lowest to the highest utility bills in the nation. Robert will fight to cap utility rate increases so they cannot rise faster than inflation."

Insurance - "Texas pays the highest homeowners insurance rates in the country...Robert will fight to make the Texas Department of Insurance Commissioner an elected position - accountable to voters and ratepayers."

Education - "We must re-prioritize our state budget to increase funding for public education, and put it front and center. Our public schools should be the centerpiece of our communities, ensuring that our children receive the best education possible."

New Economy - "We need to encourage responsible oil and gas drilling, but we must work to end our addiction to foreign oil. The first steps would be to encourage wind and sun farms in west Texas through tax breaks and incentives to businesses, and through providing the infrastructure to move the energy created throughout the state."

Transportation - "Mesquite, Balch Springs and Sunnyvale are in need of mass transit, including commuter rail. Robert will explore every avenue to bring this service to the district. Mass transit is vital for economic development."
