Campaign themes

Starkweather's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Strong Schools

  • Excerpt:"We shouldn’t be laying off teachers and teachers’ assistants. They help our children and their jobs help our local economy. Legislative leaders should be ashamed that NC now spends less per pupil than just about any other state in the nation."

Good Jobs

  • Excerpt:"We must support local farms and businesses and work strategically to attract clean industries — not simply wait for the jobs to show up."

Clean Air and Water

  • Excerpt:"don’t allow hydraulic fracking for gas in North Carolina, until and unless we are certain it will not undermine our health and environment."

Restore the Dream

  • Excerpt:"We must restore the promise of upward mobility for all. The American Dream is for everyone, not just the privileged few."

Stop the Train Wreck

  • Excerpt:"The new legislative majority in Raleigh has eliminated teaching jobs, attacked the educators’ association, and begun dismantling environmental laws. Now they are trying to turn back the clock on the rights of women, minorities and anyone who doesn’t share their ideology."
