Rushkoff's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
We should strive to keep Maryland's public schools No. 1 in the country. Our future depends on our investments in education, including pre-K education.
Only by maintaining state funding for our public schools, and ensuring adequate local funding, can we attract and retain the most talented teachers, keep class sizes manageable, and provide sufficient school facilities.
At the University of Maryland, we can establish a highly selective teaching college, with loan forgiveness for graduates who choose to teach in Maryland public schools.
The public option would offer health insurance that maximizes benefits for policyholders, not profits for shareholders. Patient welfare must come first.
As more Marylanders freely choose the public option over commercial insurance policies, we can expect to see simplified medical billing, reduced administrative burden, and greater cost control.
