Campaign themes

Lamonte's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "As your representative, I will fight to fully restore school funding so that all of our kids can get a fair shot at a good future."

Seniors

  • Excerpt: "Our seniors shouldn’t have to decide between buying groceries, paying the heat bill or getting a needed prescription refilled. I will go to work in Lansing to get rid of this tax."

Middle-Class Taxes

  • Excerpt: "These changes have left our families on the hook to pay for an enormous give-away to corporations, and that’s not fair. My priority in Lansing will be middle-class families, not corporate special interests."
