Wimple's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
|“||Restore Funding to Our Public Schools. As a mother of three grown children, I know how much a good education has contributed to their success. I want that for all Michigan’s kids, but I know that right now our schools are struggling under drastic funding cuts. When I go to Lansing, I will work hard to see that our schools get the funding they need so that our kids aren’t sitting in overcrowded classrooms. I will fight to ensure our kids have the books, supplies and technology necessary for a world-class education that prepares them for college and the work force.
Bring Tax Relief to Our Seniors and Families. I will work to fully restore the Earned Income Tax Credit, Homestead Property Tax Credit and the $600 per-child deduction, and to 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.
Support Small Businesses and Agriculture. Small businesses and agriculture are the life-blood of our communities, especially here in the 57th District. Local shops provide jobs for our families and friends, and our local farms provide food for local stores and farmers’ markets. I understand that investing in our small businesses and working with our farmers on their concerns and needs is one of the best ways we can invest in Michigan’s economy. In Lansing, I will do everything I can to support our local businesses and farms that create jobs and spur economic growth.
Make Sure Local Governments Get Their Fair Share to Provide Critical Services. Public safety is one of the most important resources to make a community prosper. Without police and fire services, residents don’t feel safe, and neither do business owners. We rely on our local governments to provide safety and other services –such as trash collection, recycling programs and snow removal – to keep our communities functioning. But Lansing politicians have made communities jump through hoops to qualify for funding, and many currently have to do more with less. I’ll fight to make sure that our communities have the state support they need to provide necessary services to residents and businesses.
