Issues

Campaign themes

Cortes's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs

  • Excerpt:"Unless you can take care of your family by putting food on the table and a roof over their heads, not much else matters. A job is the single most important need that our families have and it is my first priority."

Education

  • Excerpt:"We must fully support and fund education, the state constitution states so, our children deserve it and the state supreme court has ruled that basic education must be fully funded by 2018."

Prioritizing and Improving state government through responsible state spending

  • Excerpt:"We must, as a state, stop the constant gimmicks, accounting maneuvers and other short term fixes for our state budget. Yes, we have all been affected by the ‘Great Recession’, including our state however, we need to shift our budget priorities to one that accurately reflects the new realities."

CRC (Columbia River Crossing Project)

  • Excerpt:"I am in support of a project that spans the Columbia River; the project that we have been presented with is not the answer, however."
