Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Blood's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Nebraska must work diligently to keep education accessible and affordable to all Nebraska Residents. College should be a secure investment for any student, from any background."

Agriculture

  • Excerpt: "As a 3rd generation farm girl, I can tell you that the agriculture industry and family owned farms are vital to our state's economy. Building capacity for our farming future helps build Nebraska's economic future."

Tax Reform

  • Excerpt: "I am going to do whatever is in my power to provide tax relief to Veterans and Social Security recipients to the best of my ability. Nebraska is viewing taxes in a short sided way. We need to take a look at the long term and not the short term, as well as our cash reserves."

Prison Overcrowding

  • Excerpt: "Nebraska can save millions of dollars by rethinking mandatory minimum sentences and expanding our prison alternatives. We can continue to be tough on crime in a fashion that is also smart. Incarceration should be used to punish, deter and rehabilitate. If we convict, warehouse and forget, we are not being responsible with taxpayer money and we create a type of revolving door for repeat offenders."

Veteran Self Employment

  • Excerpt: "We can do better with this potential pool of qualified veterans and find a way to better identify their needs while providing appropriate services."
