  • Creating Jobs and Economic Development

  • Protecting Senior Citizens
Excerpt: "While some politicians are wrongly calling for steep cuts to social security and Medicare, Allison will fight to prevent slashing benefits that seniors have worked their entire lives to earn."
  • Cutting Lawmakers’ Pay
Excerpt: "At a time when many are struggling financially, Allison will lead by example by blocking lawmakers from getting salary increases and passing a law making it more difficult for lawmakers to raise their own salaries."
  • Protecting our Children
Excerpt: "As a mother, Allison knows we must protect our children from dangerous sexual predators. She supports extended sentencing, which will allow a judge to keep sex offenders locked up beyond their release dates if they represent a danger to the public."
