Campaign themes

Caggia identified the following as her campaign themes:[4]

Academic growth for all kids

"We need to celebrate the student whose grades improve from 45 to 70%; but also to enable the average and top proficient learner to show growth from year to year to their potentials."

Innovative opportunities to have marketable graduates

"To increase student learning, we must expand opportunities inside and outside the classroom. Our school board must be leading the way with policies that use technology wisely, not blocking innovation with antiquated policy."

Non-partisan Collaboration

"Most of the individuals on the Town Of Cary Council, including the Mayor, and Wake GOP endorsement shows the real record of being a local consensus builder and working together with people!"

Accountability to ensure money is well spent and based on proven methods

Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously.

Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[8]
