Campaign themes


Crain's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]


  • Excerpt: "The current policies guiding our state through the growth management act and both of the departments of Ecology and the Natural Resources are driving this economy down. I truly believe that we need legislative oversight committees to address these two departments as well as the issues surrounding L&I’s handling of workers compensation regulations and rates."


  • Excerpt: "We should not be taking funds from our transportation budget to pay taxes with our own tax money we already paid in when we build a new bridge or road. We need WSDOT reforms before we ever consider giving another dime in taxes to this very defective branch of government."


  • Excerpt: "It is time that we sit down and change the way we budget. Serious reforms need to be done to assure the future of our children both in their education and their future potential to continue living here when they are the adults in the room. They need us to be proactive about protecting their freedoms of choice regarding careers, residency, and lifestyles."


Crain's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Excerpt:"Create legislation that reforms and repeals in order to reign in the department of Ecology in Washington State."
  • Excerpt:"Reduce discretionary spending programs in order to bring about fiscal constraint in governmental spending."
  • Excerpt:"Work to reform L&I laws regarding workers compensation adding optional privatization coverage plans."
  • Excerpt:"Reform public employees’ benefits programs so that all personnel are covered with equal benefits."
  • Excerpt:"Restructure spending in K-12 funding at the classroom level."
