Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "In order to support small business and the economy of North Carolina, we must work across the aisle to come up with a long term solution that balances the budget, makes the tax code fair to all North Carolina families, and provides small business owners the support they need to continue growing our economy and creating jobs here in North Carolina."

Education

  • Excerpt: "We must continue to support public education by recruiting and retaining the best teachers, and support them by increasing teachers’ wages to the national average and providing resources for every student in every classroom – without compromising North Carolina’s world class public university system. We must invest in every child to succeed, and the current General Assembly has proven that they are not willing to put teachers and students first. This must change, and we must ensure that North Carolina continues to value and invest in our public education system."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Denying fully funded Medicaid expansion leaves nearly 500,000 individuals and working families in North Carolina uninsured. In addition to leaving low-income individuals uninsured, denying Medicaid expansion will send our hard-earned tax dollars to other states and place additional burdens on hospitals and employers."
