Campaign themes


Sheldon's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Deb is focusing on a policy platform that puts communities first. She wants to begin to improve our commonwealth’s education system by better evaluating superintendents and preserving curriculum flexibility in the classroom, giving teachers the tools to teach and keeping those who run our schools honest. If we get education right in this state, we can create a better future for our children and achieve sustained, broad-based economic growth. Deb wants to finally address the pension crisis in Kentucky in a responsible and honest way. This starts with repealing House Bill 299, the legislation that greatly inflated pensions for state legislators. Moreover, Deb wants to preserve and promote the role of local government in our communities. Local government is often more accountable and responsible, and is a much better vehicle to deliver the real change that Kentucky needs instead of the inefficient and one-size-fits all approach of Frankfort and Washington.[2][3]
