Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Colvin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

Restore funding to our schools

  • Excerpt: "Through my years of involvement with West Bloomfield School District, I have seen how important it is that our schools and teachers have the resources they need to prepare our children for today’s competitive job market. Supporting our kids and making sure their schools get the funding they need is one of my top priorities."

Roll back tax increases on middle class families and seniors

  • Excerpt: "Recent tax law changes have resulted in many individuals paying more in taxes while corporations pay much less. This is simply unfair and it is making it difficult for middle class families and seniors to make ends meet. I will work to restore the tax credits and deductions families rely on, and repeal the tax on seniors’ retirement income."

Bring back funding for police and fire services

  • Excerpt: "Public safety is one of the most important resources for any community. Without police and fire services, residents do not feel safe, and I will do everything I can to bring these public safety necessities back to full strength."

Support small business owners and help them create jobs

  • Excerpt: "I have helped many small business owners throughout my career navigate through the challenges they face. We must support and encourage small business owners so they can create jobs and put people back to work."

Protect our natural resources

  • Excerpt: "The 39th District is full of pristine lakes and rivers. The recreational beauty is unmatched here and across the entire state. We must conserve these resources for our kids and grandchildren."
