Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Education

  • Excerpt: "I will promote a strong, quality focused public education system in North Carolina."

Citizen's rights

  • Excerpt: "As a former U.S. History and Civics teacher who spent years in the classroom encouraging and celebrating our young people’s participation in our voting system I am appalled at the current actions of the N. C. legislature and governor. My goal, if elected as the Senator for District 1, is to repeal or change the major discriminatory sections of this law, which purposely attempts to deny voting rights to minorities, the young and the poor."

Taxation

  • Excerpt: "What is needed is a return to equity in taxation through a return to an actual progressive tax system. When I taught economics to my students, the concept of fairness and practicality using progressive taxation in a successful democracy was evident. I was able to prove through historical example the effectiveness of that system of taxation. If elected I will work with all members of the Senate to bring about the needed change from our current unfair and dangerous tax laws."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "If elected I will fight to protect our delicate environment from the many threats posed by the current Republican leaders."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "If elected as senator for District 1, I will focus on both increasing access to education and technology as a way to bring about those much needed jobs. I will also research and work to assist in ways to support our areas small businesses, which are the backbone of the N.C. economy."
