Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Butler's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Invest in public education

  • Excerpt: "Arizona ranks near the bottom in student funding and graduation rates. Over $3 billion has been cut from the K-12 budget since 2008. Our state universities lost 50 percent of their public funding, forcing them to substantially raise tuition rates. Support for public education, from K-12 through college, is critical to Arizona's economic recovery and as your State Senator I will commit to restoring education funding."

Attract businesses and create quality jobs

  • Excerpt: "We need more high paying jobs in established industries and in emerging sectors, including bioscience and sustainability. As your State Senator I will commit to policies that revitalize our infrastructure and build an educated workforce so these new jobs are available in Arizona."

Protect children and families

  • Excerpt: "The failures of Child Protective Services were tragic. As your State Senator, I will ensure that the new Department of Child Safety has the resources and oversight needed to protect our children. I will work to restore funds for preventive services that help families and keep children in their homes."
