Campaign themes


Walters' website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Protect Michigan’s valuable natural resources

  • Excerpt: "I will work to reinstate the DNR’s mission of basing environmental usage decisions on scientific evidence rather than solely on “big money” interests."

Raising the state minimum wage – a Win/Win

  • Excerpt: "At $10.10/hour, thousands of Michigan families will be lifted out of poverty, and Michigan taxpayers will no longer have to provide them with bridge cards, a huge boost to families, our economy, and a significant saving for taxpayers."

Support Public Education

  • Excerpt: "No state or business can cut its way to prosperity. Education funding is a critical investment that pays dividends by raising the capability and earnings of workers, saving taxpayer money by reducing the number of people receiving food stamps, and by reducing the number of people incarcerated"

Women and Families need an advocate in Lansing

  • Excerpt: "State government should not be interfering in the relationship between women, their doctors and their insurance companies."
