Bernardo Michael Licata (b. April 6, 1941) was a 2014 Democratic candidate for District 81 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1][2]


Campaign themes


Licata's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

1. Rebuild infrastructure / roads and bridges: Initiating these programs will boost economic growth and generate jobs. The new International Bridge to Canada will be a significant add to both.

2. Stop the destruction of public education: Funding of Charter Schools is using your tax dollars to undermine the public school system. It is time to stop this assault on our most valuable resource—our children.

We have had a ‘public education system’ in this country for many years. While it has served us well, the system should grow with technology and the times. Teachers need to be honored; and, should be treated and paid as ‘professionals’. I will work to improve the delivery of ‘public education’ at K-12, the Community College and State Colleges and Universities.

3. Preserve Michigan’s natural resources: The Great Lakes are one of the largest repositories of fresh water in the world. They are crucial to Michigan and our Country. Clean water is paramount. We must protect the Great Lakes at all cost. (From invasive species to pollution…we must be vigilant.)

4. Equality and Women’s Rights: I believe in ‘equality’ for all people. I believe all people have the right of ‘choice’.[3][4]
