Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Havens' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe we need to invest in universal pre-school, provide our children with rich and stimulating learning materials and experiences, as well as resources that include small classes, teacher aides, and learning programs that benefit their parents as well."

Equal Rights

  • Excerpt: "I will fight to restore women to a respected place in Michigan law with access to reproductive services determined by women and their doctors."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "To grow jobs here, Michigan must embrace the future while keeping true to our traditional farmlands, our work ethic, and our beautiful state that brings millions of tourists annually."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I will fight to restore the tax credits lost by families and seniors, as well as establish a fair and balanced approach to taxes, providing an opportunity for Michiganders to invest in themselves."

Veterans

  • Excerpt: "The Michigan and Federal governments need to utilize the technology at our disposal to create an efficient and effective network for Veterans to receive their well deserved benefits. Any deceased Veteran due to an unresponsive and sluggish agency is unacceptable. I will fight to protect those who have graciously given their lives, time, and future so this great nation can remain free. "
