Campaign themes

Butler's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Let’s Get Back to Work

  • Excerpt:"Deb Butler will make sure we make the investments needed for our future. She will make sure our area has the infrastructure we need to recruit and retain the best employers and that we don’t play politics when American companies like Caterpillar and Continental Tire want to bring good-paying jobs here."

Education Moves Us Forward

  • Excerpt:"Cutting education to balance the budget is not the answer. We must reduce class size and make sure our schools and teachers have every resource available so our kids have the best education possible. We must make our local universities and community colleges accessible and affordable for more citizens."

Common Sense Solutions for Women, Seniors and Families

  • Excerpt:"Instead of focusing on a radical social agenda, Deb will listen to what is important right here at home in New Hanover County. She will use common sense to tackle our state’s greatest problems. She believes women deserve to make their own choices. Seniors deserve to age with dignity and working families deserve every opportunity to succeed."
