Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Polikoff's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Health Care For All Oregon

  • Excerpt: "I support universal, publicly-funded medical coverage. Health care is a basic right, not a privilege only for those who can afford it."

Establish An Oregon State Bank

  • Excerpt: "Keep our money in Oregon. Stop giving hundreds of millions to JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, and the other banks who crashed our financial system and channel that money to small businesses and farmers. North Dakota has a state bank (and fared much better in the latest economic crash); why can't we?"

Fewer Prisoners, Better Schools

  • Excerpt: "Get non-violent drug offenders out of our prison system and use the money for more K-12 teachers & staff, educational aids, and debt relief for college students."

Economic Justice

  • Excerpt: "A fair minimum wage for all who work for a living. Tax policies that mean all pay their fair share, especially corporations who earn large profits but still pay little or no state income tax."

A Sustainable Oregon

  • Excerpt: "I support local food production, and the right to keep GMOs out of our food supply. Convert coal-based power to 100% renewable energy, and resist the influence of out-of-state energy interests. Establish policies that favor small businesses and green technologies. Our goal should be an Oregon that meets our needs as well as our childrens needs, not one of unsustainable growth."
