Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Roselius' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Our city offers a wide variety of educational options – from neighborhood, charter, and magnet schools, to distance learning programs. With choices like these, I cannot support vouchers that grab $100 million out of our public classrooms, from an already strained budget."

High Interior Energy Costs

  • Excerpt: "We need more energy production, expanded investment in efficiency, and other solutions that save us money."

Judicial Council

  • Excerpt: "I support our Constitution and a nonpartisan judiciary that makes decisions based on the law, not on politics."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "Our state needs a prioritized, balanced budget that supports education, our workforce, infrastructure, and the needs of Alaskans first."

Women's Issues

  • Excerpt: "This expansion of Medicaid would generate an economic benefit to the state, while helping women in need of pre-natal and post-natal care."
