Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

Good Jobs

  • "The new bridge and routing of Highway 34 through areas south of Bellevue and investments in StratCom will create great opportunities for job creation and balanced growth. I will work with local and state leaders to push for infrastructure and development choices that benefit Bellevue and Offutt."
  • "Small businesses create most jobs. This is particularly true in Olde Town Bellevue and along the Fort Crook corridor. I will push for tax policies that support investment in existing and new small businesses, and regulatory relief for small business."

Good Education

  • "As we work to protect what works well in education and to improve and innovate where possible, we must be willing to boldly address the tough questions about the state’s proper role in funding and standards. I will work to ensure that teachers are an equal partner in the decision-making process on these important matters and that the concerns of parents are treated with respect and sensitivity."
  • "A strong education system involves a rich mix of opportunities for individuals of all ages to learn and to improve their lives that includes, but goes beyond, the classroom. It also encourages research and innovation that open new opportunities and improve our quality of life."

Good Government

  • "Good government adapts to what is already working well on the ground and recognizes the practical value of a rich mix of government, nonprofit, business, and individual efforts in creating effective programs and efficient services."
  • "Good government bases choices on hard facts and creates strong accountability mechanisms to protect vulnerable individuals and taxpayer money."
