McFolin provided the following statement to Ballotpedia:
|“||Many economic issues are connected with this whole issue of academic learning disability discrimination. The results of lack of change of the regulations towards special ed students who can do the academic work outside of their academic learning disability have, social, health and economic results to taxpayers. I am running for office because of the twenty some years that we as his parents have had to advocate against the present education system. I hope to achieve new regulations that benefit the special ed students/adults.||”|
