Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Croker's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Health and Human Services
Excerpt: "Health and Human Services play a crucial role in our State. ...With such awesome responsibility comes the need for a high level of accountability. Medical providers have expressed concerns over some practices, Nursing Facility providers have expressed concerns over some practices, and this list continues as well."
  • Ethics Law
Excerpt: " I believe everyone given the public trust must act honorably and be above reproach. Your trust should never be violated, we need an ethics law."
  • Our Children
Excerpt: ."..I am passionate about this work and will do whatever I can to reduce the number of children that are neglected or abused. I do not have all the answers but I can tell you I will look for them and seek to provide a safer Idaho for our children."
  • Education and Economic Development
Excerpt: "Every year, more than a third of U.S. workers change jobs, and more than 30 million Americans are working in newly created jobs. One of the best ways to meet the demands of Idaho’s future is our community colleges and technical colleges. Both are less expensive than four-year institutions and in addition to two-year degrees both provide one or two year certificate programs as well."
  • Students Come First Law
Excerpt: "Teachers need to be prepared better at addressing learning diversity in the classroom. We need to put our limited fiscal resources where they will do the most good. I would propose that a system of 'instructional model building' be incorporated that helps to develop our teachers in addressing more diverse learning once instructional models are found that can be employed."
