Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Yeager-Rose's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "A product of public education, Dr. Kim Rose strongly believes public education is the heart and soul of Pennsylvania. It’s the last thing we need to be cutting in Harrisburg. Our state’s future depends on ensuring that our sons and daughters receive a great public education. If elected to the State Senate, Dr. Rose will go to Harrisburg and make sure that our public schools are properly and fully funded."

Equality

  • Excerpt: "Dr. Kim Rose dedicated to achieving equality for all Pennsylvanians. She believes strongly that no one should be discriminated against for who they are or who they love and is dedicated to protecting all citizens of Pennsylvania. Specifically, Dr. Rose plans on fighting for income equality for women and non-discrimination protections for the LGBT community."

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "Dr. Rose is concerned about jobs and Pennsylvania’s economy. As a small business owner, she understand the importance of smart and efficient economic decisions and leadership. But under Governor Corbett and Tommy Tomlinson, Pennsylvania went from 8th in the country in job creation to 48th. We need leaders in Harrisburg who are fighting for smart economic policies that are moving Pennsylvania forward, not back."

Women's Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Dr. Kim Rose has two granddaughters and can't wait to see them grow up in Pennsylvania. But Governor Corbett and Tommy Tomlinson have attacked women's health care and rights in Harrisburg. Dr. Rose is committed to fighting for her granddaughters and the women of Bucks County and ensuring they have the right to make their own decisions about their own bodies. She is also committed to ensuring we live in a state that pays equal wages for equal work."
