Campaign themes


Savary's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Education Availability: "America loses when our children cannot afford to attend college or graduate with crushing debt that they cannot repay. Education has always been the reason for America's success."
  • Gender Equality: "Generations of women have fought too hard and for too long for the rights we revere for us to allow anyone to stop us now. Suzanne will fight for the right to self-determination for all women and girls because, as Hillary so memorably said, " ...Women's rights are Human Rights.""
  • Leadership is Problem Solving: "As a business owner who has spent her career turning businesses into high performance organizations, I know WE CAN BE PRO-BUSINESS AND PRO-FAMILY. We do not have to pay poverty wages to workers to be successful. America works best with a strong middle class and markets that work."
