Rajnicek's website listed themes for her 2011 campaign:
I bring a NEW VOICE for Waukesha EDUCATION Education is first, last and will always be about the children. I have separated myself from the teachers unions. My response to deny endorsement, " The relationships between our board members and your union have gone too far to try to place divisions in what seems to be so simple- the best possible education for our children with honest praises and salaries to our teachers for what they do for our community backed behind a board of education who operates honestly on behalf of the taxpayers and parents who fund this process. PLEASE DO NOT ENDORSE ME UNDER YOUR UNION! "
I am COMMITTED to living RESPONSIBLY within our BUDGET Wasteful spending in our communities and especially our schools is infuriating. This needs to stop! People can spend money easily when it is not their own. As the mother of 3 children in our public schools living on one middle class income, I have learned how to provide the best for my family at the best price. Being a fiscal conservative, I bring a fresh perspective to address our education budget as If it were my own. I am committed to making right choices by being fiscally responsible with the resources we have.
I will help restore FAITH & CONFIDENCE in our COMMUNITY Our fading winter paints the picture of our status quo school board of Waukesha. I am the only new person running for school board. It's time for spring. A new voice, passionate and dedicated to do what is right and ready to take action on what is not. Citizens of Waukesha, I would be honored to serve you on this school board. Your one vote can change this. Your voice matters and YOU have a choice Tuesday, April 5th JUST VOTE FOR 1 - Rajnicek. Together- we can all be heard!
