Campaign themes


Aliaga's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt: "Mr. Aliaga personally experienced horrific road hazard this past winter and knows the need to repair Michigan’s roads and infrastructure. This will benefit Michigan families, workers, and businesses alike. Jose Aliaga is also dedicated to examining the road funding formula and holding contractors accountable to ensure your tax dollars are being spent efficiently."


  • Excerpt: "As an educator, Jose Aliaga knows the need to invest in pre-Kindergarten, K-12, and higher-educational opportunities, so that quality education is accessible to all and affordable for students and families."

Western Oakland County Economic Comeback

  • Excerpt: "As a representative of the people in our community, Mr. Aliaga will be most effective in Lansing to bring a hospital to fruition and bring economic balance to property values and secure 1000s of jobs within the community, not to mention the $400 Million that will be spent in the area."

Protecting The Under-Served

  • Excerpt: "Decisions made about the economy, education, health care, and other issues have real effects on families in our community. Jose Aliaga is particularly concerned about protecting the under-served – our seniors, children, veterans, and the disabled – and ensuring their voices are heard in Lansing."


  • Excerpt: "Taxes for businesses and individuals should be low. Low taxes on businesses promote economic growth. I will not support an increase in net taxes."
