Campaign themes


Pierman's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

The Michigan Way

  • Excerpt: "I support our Michigan values: fairness, equality, democracy, responsibility and hard work. I will fight for those values, and build a Michigan that works for everyone, not just wealthy special interests."

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "I will work to build a Michigan where families, young people and seniors can stay and succeed; and where returning women and men from the military will be able to readily get employment and the healthcare that they require in return for their service to our country."


  • Excerpt: "I will work to restore Michigan's education to the high quality level that it once held in our country."

Snyder’s Failed School Takeover District

  • Excerpt: "I will work for an increased investment in our public schools which is an investment in Michigan's future and will be a winning investment for everyone. Better schools in the state means retaining the workforce talent to create small business opportunities and employment for others."

Michigan’s Environment

  • Excerpt: "I have been actively taking a stand for Michigan’s environment. In 2014, I will continue to work to restore leadership that will make keeping Michigan pure a priority."
