Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Ashabraner's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Real World Experience as a Teacher in our Public Schools
Excerpt: "With so much talk about education from K-12 to our colleges and universities, it’s surprising that there are no teachers in the legislature. Karin Ashabraner will bring real classroom experience to these policy discussions in Olympia."
  • Championing our Small Businesses
Excerpt: "Let’s face it. Even though we are seeing signs of an improving economy, unemployment is still too high on the Peninsula. We need to eliminate existing tax breaks that are not creating jobs or helping our businesses grow."
  • Honoring our Veterans
Excerpt: "Our soldiers put their lives on the line for us, and they deserve honor and dignity when they return service. As a retired member of the Army Reserves, Karin will always look out for our veterans especially as many Iraq and Afghanistan veterans return home to our community reconnecting with their families and re-entering the work force."
