Karpinsky's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Restore Funding to Our Public Schools
- Excerpt: "When I go to Lansing, I will work hard to see that our schools get the funding they need so that our kids aren’t sitting in overcrowded classrooms. I will fight to see that our kids have the books, supplies and technology necessary for a world-class education that prepares them for college and the work force."
Bring Tax Relief to Our Seniors and Families
- Excerpt: "Michiganders work hard for their money, and it is unfair that, because of these taxes and lost credits and deductions, they are paying 32 percent more in taxes while big corporations are paying 83 percent less. I will end tax breaks to big corporations that fail to create jobs and put that money back in your pocket."
Support our Small Businesses and Our Workers
- Excerpt: "Small businesses are the life-blood of our communities, especially here in House District 30, because they provide jobs for our families and friends. I understand that investing in our small businesses and working with them to meet their needs and address their concerns is one of the best ways we can invest in Michigan’s economy. In Lansing, I will do everything I can to support our local businesses that create jobs and spur economic growth."
Make Sure Local Governments Get Their Fair Share to Provide Critical Services
- Excerpt: "Public safety is one of the most important resources to make a community prosper. Without police and fire services, residents don’t feel safe, and neither do business owners. We rely on our local governments to provide safety and other services – such as trash collection, recycling programs and snow removal – to keep our communities functioning. But Lansing politicians have made communities jump through hoops to qualify for funding, and many have to do more with less. I’ll fight to make sure that our communities have the state support they need to provide necessary services to residents and businesses."
