Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Pagan's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Invest in Education

  • Excerpt: "Kristy’s number one priority is to ensure our state invests in high-quality education for all children. That’s why Kristy will fight to restore cuts to the School Aid Fund and fully fund our schools."

Fix Our Roads

  • Excerpt: "The condition of Michigan’s roads is more than an embarrassment—it deters economic growth and requires our residents to make costly auto repairs. Kristy favors long-term solutions over short-term fixes. She will advocate for a substantial increase in overweight truck fees (Michigan has some of the lowest fees in the country)."

Create Good-Paying Jobs

  • Excerpt: "No one that works hard in Michigan should live below the poverty line. That’s why Kristy supports increasing the minimum wage. A union daughter, Kristy will fight to repeal Michigan’s harmful Right to Work for Less law. As a small business owner herself, Kristy believes that investing in small businesses and entrepreneurs will strengthen local economies and communities."

Keep Young People in Michigan

  • Excerpt: "These days, many young people choose where to live based on the place, not the job. Kristy knows that to keep our young people in Michigan, we must make communities safe, vibrant, and welcoming. That’s why Kristy supports investing in public transportation and cultural economic development. Furthermore, Kristy will fight to ensure Michigan is safe and welcoming to all by adding protections for LBGT residents to the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights Act."

Stand Up for Seniors

  • Excerpt: "Kristy believes our state’s workers deserve a secure retirement. She will fight for the repeal of the new pension tax, which takes hard-earned money out of seniors’ pockets."
