Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Education

  • Excerpt: "Cyndi is alarmed by legislation passed in the last three years that demeans and discredits education professionals. Budgets that funnel money out of comprehensive, community governed schools to corporations is not fiscally responsible. Public policy decisions need to be data-driven, include input from those in the field, and reflect legitimate best practices. It is our job as a community to work together to create the best possible environment for our children to learn and develop lifelong skills."

Energy, Environment and Infrastructure

  • Excerpt: "Cyndi acknowledges Michigan's need for comprehensive solutions to meet our long-term energy needs. She knows this cannot be done without a transition to clean energy. In the legislature, Cyndi will vote for greater investment in renewable energy sources so that Michigan can be less dependent on foreign oil, while simultaneously creating sustainable jobs within the state."

LGBTQ Equality

  • Excerpt: "She firmly believes no one should be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. Discrimination in any form violates core American values of fairness and equality.As the 13th District’s Senator, Cyndi will fight alongside the people of Michigan to make sure every voice is not only heard, but also recognized."

Women

  • Excerpt: "When elected to office, Cyndi will call on fellow lawmakers to join her in the fight to advance equal pay legislation. She believes this can be accomplished through such common sense approaches such as requiring employers to be more transparent in their salary reporting for similarly situated positions, and by penalizing those who are uncooperative or who pay disparate wages for similar job descriptions and experience. Cyndi will work to make sure all will work to make sure all Michigan women and their families are protected against unequal pay practices."
