Campaign themes


Sundeen's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Expanding Education and Expanding Opportunity: "Every parent anyone has talked to wants only the best for their children, and far too many parents are unhappy with the choices they have in education. Due to a confusing funding system, and an expanding and self-serving bureaucracy, our public schools struggle to provide the environment our children need to learn essential life skills. We preach the message that all children should be in college, which saddles many with unnecessary debt. They should have other paths and opportunities available to them, but higher education needs constant enrollment and subsidy to sustain itself."
  • Preserving Civil Rights and Liberties: "All Americans deserve the liberties that allow them to follow their dreams without interference from others, especially our government. History has shown the frightening depths that human beings will go to oppress each other. This means that we all have a duty, as citizens and people, to protect the essential Civil Rights and Liberties that make us truly human."
  • Economic Freedom to Prosperity: "The Bay Area has been lucky to have experienced prosperity despite the economic woe that has hurt the rest of the state and the nation. Most experts and citizens would agree that it has been somewhat unbalanced, that being "middle class" just isn't sustainable anymore, and for some that standard is unattainable. Rising unemployment that is felt, but hidden in official statistics seems to increase the despair over the loss of what we thought was a simple dream: That anyone with a decent amount of responsibility and a positive attitude could accrue enough wealth to raise their family on their own legally owned and bought property."
