Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Xiong's 2012 campaign website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Education

  • Excerpt: "We know to be true that a “prosperous society is dependent upon an educated public.” Society benefits when we put a value on providing the best education we can for our children. Without a quality education, our youth will be doomed to a future of low wages and low skills."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "I strongly oppose the Republican proposal to change Medicare. Under the Republican plan, health services costs for seniors would double. That is unacceptable."

Housing Crisis

  • Excerpt: "Home foreclosures are one of the most pressing issues facing our nation."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "American history was shaped by the lives of people who came to this land to work hard and build a better life for themselves and their families. They were willing to risk everything for a chance at the American Dream."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "The lack of decent, good-paying jobs is a serious problem in our Valley."
