Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Lachney's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Creating Jobs
Excerpt: "Too many of our neighbors are still out of work. The Legislature needs to do more to create jobs by:
  • Ensuring East Pierce County receives new Capital Projects and work programs.
  • Sunset and review tax exemptions to ensure they are creating jobs or improving the economy
  • Ending the business tax on gross profits.
  • Insisting on government reforms that make the best use of taxpayer money."
  • Championing our Public Schools
Excerpt: "As a former school board director, I know firsthand the challenges facing our public schools. Let’s continue to reform our K-12 system with:
  • Increased accountability of our school’s Administration.
  • A greater effort to retain and recruit quality teachers.
  • A consistent focus on meeting the mandate set forth in our Constitution, to FULLY fund basic education.
  • Increase graduation rates"
  • Making Government Work
Excerpt: "We need a new approach to state government. We teach our children the importance of civility, good manners, and the Golden Rule. Too often these lessons are ignored by elected officials that undermine good government to score cheap political points."
