Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Economy

  • Excerpt: "Government needs to step back from interfering with a successful economy and step up to supporting actions which will grow our economy. I know it is not a positive to be out of work. All of us need to have a purpose, to be part of our community, to achieve independence through skills and work experience, and to be able to support our own and our loved ones’ needs. Businesses, including agriculture and manufacturing, need to thrive so each of our own employment opportunities can grow."

Agriculture

  • Excerpt: "Agriculture in Michigan is as important as manufacturing for our economy. The agricultural workforce makes up 22% of our jobs. We are blessed with millions of acres of fertile land where farm families tirelessly work to put food on our tables and feed people throughout the world. Michigan needs to foster growth in this segment of our economy and to preserve the agricultural lifestyles involved with this type of industry and our environment."

Roads

  • Excerpt: "Serviceable roads are necessary for our lifestyles, safety and economic success. In the current economy road maintenance can cost millions of dollars for just a short distance of repair. Any road repair for a wider impact needs organization and innovation. Michigan’s poor road conditions have been taking place over decades; this issue cannot be magically fixed in a short time frame. However, through common sense, focus and planning, I am confident Michigan can solve this problem over a reasonable time period."

Education

  • Excerpt: "As a State Representative, I would respect all people involved in education as individuals; I would not prioritize individuals’ concerns due to their group affiliations, economic class, or other categorization. I intend to work with as many individuals as I can reach in the communities I serve, to obtain continued insight on educational needs which can be supported, not dictated, by State government. Through our community’s shared input from administrators, local school boards,teachers, and parents, we can make informed decisions about what would work best for our children. Any financial assistance from the State should be fairly distributed and focused on positive results for our children in the classroom."
