Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Economy, Business, and Jobs

  • Excerpt: "I believe jobs are not created in the halls of our legislature. Jobs are created in the minds, hearts, and hands of entrepreneurs and small business owners. A job provides opportunity, and accomplishment. It is imperative of our government to create an environment that allows people to flourish and reach their highest potentials."

Roads

  • Excerpt: "According to national data, Michigan has the 6th highest state taxes on gasoline, but one of the lowest rates of investment in our roads. Simply put: we are inefficient. Before we raise our taxes again we must do everything we can to find funds already available in our budget. It is not that complicated."

Veterans

  • Excerpt: "I was extremely close with my uncle. Towards the end of his life, I had the pleasure to speak with him daily and witness the terrible battle he had to wage against the VA to receive any help for his declining medical condition. I understand the need to provide and reward our true heroes."

Restorative Justice

  • Excerpt: "Restorative Justice helps lower the economic burden on our state while fostering more effective rehabilitation for victims and offenders. Currently, a vast majority of our crime and punishment budget is spent on imprisoning perpetrators and has proven horribly ineffective in creating positive, lasting change."

Education

  • Excerpt: "It is imperative to give parents the greatest amount of options to choose from when it comes to their child's education. I support empowering local governments and providing people with the greatest amount of opportunities possible. For K-12, we need to reduce the bureaucratic burden on teachers and administrators. We need to expand educational choice and help our districts become more effiecient and effective."
