Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Passey's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Our children’s test scores are dropping, their classrooms are growing, and our graduation rates are dropping. I will work tirelessly to reverse this trend, restore our commitment to public education, and invest in the future of our children and the future of our state."

Business

  • Excerpt: "As the daughter of a Murray small business owner I know that local business is the backbone of our economy. From family owned businesses like ours, to the high tech startups we continue to entice to come to Utah, entrepreneurs and small-business owners are the foundation of our strong economy. I will advocate for policies that support and grow local businesses, which return three times the revenue to the local economy."

Working Families

  • Excerpt: "As an everyday Utahn I am determined to protect and improve the quality of life of working families. This includes protecting jobs, attracting new development, and focusing on quality employment."

Public Health

  • Excerpt: "As a member of our community, who cares about the welfare and health of my neighbors around me, I support Governor Herbert’s Healthy Utah plan. We know that this plan will provide 123,586 families of four, who are earning less than $1,879/month, affordable health insurance. This insurance will cut down on unnecessary emergency room visits and provide preventative care to thousands of Utahns. I will work across the aisle to find solutions to the healthcare needs of everyday Utahns."

Disabilities/Special Needs

  • Excerpt: "As the mother of a child with autism, supporting the disability and special needs community is important to me. Utah has the highest rates of autism in the country with 1 in 47 children affected. In Utah 13% of children have a special healthcare need or disability, and 23% of Utah families have at least one child with a special need. We must support these children and families from the time they enter school to their later years. I will advocate for the disability community and policies that support them."
