Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Fair is Fair. . .Or Is It?

  • Excerpt: "Teaching is a calling. In my forty plus years in the profession, I have yet to meet even one teacher who got into it for the money. That said, it is as important for teachers to be able to pay their bills as it is for any other profession."

The Right to Vote Isn't What It Once Was

  • Excerpt: "Voter suppression laws are being over-turned all over the country. Justice will happen where we are diligent and willing to stand up for what is right. Voter fraud is almost unheard of here in North Carolina. I spoke with people in Asheville who were examining some 70 cases. Some were people who had died and most hadn't voted in years! We need to vote different people into office and restore voter access. We can do better than this!"

Unemployment Statistics

  • Excerpt: "It is clear to me that the current legislature and I view North Carolina’s job stats and tax reform through different lenses. The illusion of a dip in unemployment numbers and the looming crisis caused by legislative tax reform in North Carolina are inextricably tied together."

Medicaid Expansion

  • Excerpt: "If North Carolina does not expand Medicaid, those already-collected funds, your tax dollars, go to some other state that has chosen to do so. North Carolina is, in effect, giving taxes dollars back to the Federal Government saying, 'Go spend this money, money you collected from us, in some other state.'"

A School is a Living Thing

  • Excerpt: "I'm a career educator. I have been a public school teacher and a school administrator for 39 years. I have devoted my life to children. When I think of what has happened to education in this state, it just crumbles my heart."
