Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Healthcare should be treated as a basic human right. Medical treatment and preventative medicines should be readily available to everyone regardless of ability to pay."

Ethics & Transparency in Government

  • Excerpt: "As your State Senator I will support strong ethics legislation that provides stiff, mandatory penalties for those who misuse public resources , abuse the public trust, or misuse the power of their office."

Tax Reform

  • Excerpt: "I support the elimination of the state income tax and the implementation of a sales tax revenue base. Seven states, including our neighbors Tennessee and Florida have eliminated the income tax and are performing well in comparison of Georgia. Under a sales tax, all residents, whether documented or undocumented, will carry a fair share of the tax burden."

Education

  • Excerpt: "As your State Senator I will make full funding of public education a top priority. Every child should have access to a high quality education, beginning with early pre-K and extending through 12th grade and beyond."

End childhood Poverty

  • Excerpt: "I believe that every child should receive a free (and healthy) school breakfast and lunch. There should be no need to prove income, no eligibility requirements, and no need to single out poor children from any other in the program."
