Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Travis' campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "As our State Representative, Judy will reign-in government spending and cut wasteful programs that drain valuable resources for projects where they are truly needed."

Strengthening Our Economy

  • Excerpt: "Judy knows the pressures of meeting a payroll and balancing a budget while raising a family. She also knows that higher taxes in tough economic times hurt middle-class and lower-income families as well as pensioners living on fixed incomes. As our State Representative, Judy Travis will take these concerns to heart and promote pro-growth policies in Dover."

Renewing Our Schools

  • Excerpt: "Judy believes in local control of neighborhood schools, increased parental involvement, and lower student to teacher ratios. Pro-child and pro-teacher, Judy will work to make Brandywine Hundred’s public schools top in the country again."

Reforming State Government

  • Excerpt: "Judy’s will be a pragmatic and passionate voice in Dover to advocate for laws that will relieve the financial pressures and burdens on our families and businesses, not add to them. Judy Travis brings compassionate care with twenty seven years of community experience to Dover. Who better than Judy Travis to represent our families and neighbors?"
