Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Read's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Restoring Funding to our Public Schools.

  • Excerpt: "Voucher programs that give state money to private schools without accountability does not improve the quality of our children’s educational outcomes and instead hurts our public schools by reducing their available state resources."

Assuring Economic Justice and Healthcare Accessibility for Women

  • Excerpt: "I will fight for women’s rights in the workplace, restore “equal pay for equal work” legislation, and push for living wages and decent, family-oriented benefits, including healthcare that is accessible and affordable."

Getting Big $ Out of Politics

  • Excerpt: "I will work to restore public trust in government by reducing the undue influence of big dollar signmoney in political campaigns. By lowering campaign contribution limits, adding donor transparency rules, and boosting enforcement of existing campaign finance laws we can help make our government more responsive to the people’s needs."
