Issues

Campaign themes

Davis' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

The Economy

  • Excerpt:"There is enormous demand for infrastructure repair and this is where we can create jobs. This is the time to use public funds to make critically necessary repairs to roadways, bridges, public buildings and utilities. I will support funding for these projects."

The Environment

  • Excerpt:"I love nature. I have worked at the New England Wildflower Society, and currently work with the Environmental League of Massachusetts, and through my work with both organizations I’ve been educated to the extreme importance of protecting our natural resources and environment."

Education

  • Excerpt:"A major path to economic recovery and sustainability is an educated workforce. There is a gap, however, between the needs of the workplace and the education of the workforce. We need to close this gap and it needs to happen on multiple levels."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt:" believe in and have benefited from preventative care. I will support the expansion of reimbursement for therapies that are prescribed by physicians to improve the physical condition of individuals with chronic problems that are not alleviated by traditional medicine. This includes acupuncture, yoga and pilates programs."

Civil Rights

  • Excerpt:"I believe that all citizens have the civil rights that I enjoy as an American middle- aged white woman of Irish Catholic descent. I think it is regrettable that some of these rights need to be legislated."
