Issues

Campaign themes

Berg's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs

  • Excerpt:"Rather than focus on narrow, trickle-down economic policies that have failed us in the past, Chuck is focused on a broad economic agenda - one that helps Minnesotan businesses grow and retain jobs while investing in education and job retraining so Minnesotans can secure good paying jobs in high demand fields."

Education

  • Excerpt:"We need to invest in our world-class education system - at every level - in order to prepare Minnesota students to become leaders in our ever-changing and competitive global economy."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt:"Minnesota needs to lead, not follow on health care. Guided by our bipartisan successes in the past, we should emphasize prevention and outcome-based solutions that control the cost of health care for all Minnesotans."

Fair Taxes

  • Excerpt:"We need to make our tax system fairer and simpler for middle class families - and most of all, ensure rich corporations and special interests are playing by the same rules as Minnesota families."

Responsible Budgets

  • Excerpt:"It's time to put an end to one-time borrowing and other budget gimmicks that simply shift the burden to future generations of Minnesotans."
