Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Mackenzie's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "The General Assembly needs to rationalize our entire public education system--regular public schools, charters and vo-techs--and return the primary governance of our schools to the local communities they serve. Our schools struggle in a swamp of state regulation and micromanagement."

Economy

  • Excerpt: "Our economy will continue to suffer until the GA invests in the smart-growth infrastructure and services necessary attract high-tech employers and private investment. We need legislators who will rebuild voter trust. If we're going to increase the gasoline tax, the revenues must be dedicated to rebuilding the Transportation Trust Fund. If we're going to increase the state minimum wage, we need to show how it will benefit rather than harm our economy."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "The Governor has proposed a series of water quality initiatives that will benefit all Delawareans, but the GA isn't willing to make the polluters pay for these. We need to reaffirm our commitment to a clean, livable Delaware."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "As an economist, I understand why US health care costs so much and delivers such mediocre health outcomes. I will fight to reform our state Medicare and Medicaid programs, and push for creation of "patient-centered medical homes" to improve coordination of care."
