Campaign themes


Baker's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Jobs & Business Growth

  • Excerpt: "The job market is improving in Michigan, but not fast enough! We need desirable, high paying jobs in our state—jobs that will not only provide for our immediate needs, but help us prepare for the future and plan for Michigan to not just “chase the pack”, but to set the pace."

Roads & Infrastructure

  • Excerpt: "We must change how our transportation dollars are collected and spent, so that we are not wasting funds, but are ensuring that we are getting the full benefit of our hard earned dollars. This has to be a priority."


  • Excerpt: "Over the past few years, Michigan has made improvements in its tax code, but the work is not done. We need to aggressively reform how our taxes are collected, making them flatter and smaller."


  • Excerpt: "We need to make smart choices to increase our education standards and to keep us competitive nationally, but not with top-down one-size-fits-all policies. If we want standards, they should be established locally, with local groups making the decisions."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "While we continue to fight against the negative impact of Obamacare, there is nothing that prohibits the State of Michigan from improving our health care system for our citizens and becoming a model of reform for the nation."
