Issues

Campaign themes

2014

McKenzie's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Support small businesses and entrepreneurs

  • Excerpt: "As a former small-business owner, I know what Michigan’s small businesses need to grow and succeed. I understand that investing in our small businesses is one of the best ways we can invest in Michigan’s economy, and I will do everything I can to support local, independent businesses that create jobs and spur economic growth."

Restore funding to Michigan’s public schools

  • Excerpt: "As a father and grandfather of five school-aged children, I know that our schools are suffering under drastic funding cuts. When you send me to Lansing, I will work hard to see that our schools get the funding they need to decrease classroom sizes, stock learning supplies and give our kids the education they deserve."

Fully restore the Earned Income Tax Credit and the $600 per-child deduction

  • Excerpt: "Eliminate the new tax on senior retirement income. I know how hard Michiganders work for their money, and it is unfair that they are paying 32 percent more in taxes while big corporations are paying 83 percent less. I will end tax breaks to big corporations that fail to create jobs and put that money back in your pocket."

Invest in Northern Michigan tourism

  • Excerpt: "We live in a beautiful area, and there are many opportunities to grow our tourism industry. As your state representative, I will do all I can to attract visitors to our region. When tourists visit our towns they will spend money at local restaurants and shops, spurring our local economy."
