Brockman's campaign website highlights the following issues:
Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "We need to find ways to put North Carolina back to work and attract businesses to the area. This state deserves quality, well-paying jobs that will build the economy of the future. This starts with raising the minimum wage for existing workers. Many politicians are trying to prevent the raise of the minimum wage, but 61 percent of North Carolinians favor it. The raise would lift many out of poverty, reduce costly turnover for businesses, and stimulate the economy."
- Excerpt: "We have to commit to education, not cut it. This starts with a substantial and serious investment in our students, teachers, and infrastructure. Too many of our state’s students are living in poverty and struggling at home. A proper education can be the key for them to improve their situation. Yet, the current General Assembly has caused lasting damage to the educational system with drastic cuts. We must not cast aside and ignore the most in need among us."
- Excerpt: "The Affordable Care Act has been passed by Congress, signed by the President, and upheld by the Supreme Court. It is the law of the land and a triumph in making sure every American has access to healthcare. Yet, many still try to attack the law based on their own rigid political ideology. It is time to embrace this system and educate people about it, so more people can benefit from it. We must also let our Governor know that opting out of the Medicaid expansion and depriving thousands of people the adequate healthcare they deserve is irresponsible. This expansion would have little cost to our state while benefiting thousands of citizens."
- Excerpt: "We must combat the harmful ideology that has plagued the General Assembly. Measures like Amendment One and the new Voter I.D. laws have set this state back. It’s time to embrace progress and move forward. We should not be limiting the amount of rights our citizens have, but instead ensuring that everyone is treated equally in the eyes of the law."
