Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Full Expansion of Medicaid is a no brainer."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "We must tighten air pollution standards, accelerate Tier 3 refining standards, encourage clean transportation and mass transportation and move from a carbon based energy economy to one with heavier reliance on renewables. Natural gas, in abundance in the Uintah basin, can be a vital bridge fuel, but only if exploited in the most environmentally sound manner. Better controls on emissions and fracking are necessary."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Quality Pre K education must be a cornerstone of our educational system."
  • Excerpt: "Higher education must be attainable for all. The Goal for Utah to have 2/3 of its population to attain at least a 2 year degree by 2020 is laudable, but is doomed to be only a talking point unless we take concrete steps to prepare our high school students for college and make college affordable for all."

Income Opportunity

  • Excerpt: "Every job should pay enough to lift a family out of poverty. A minimum wage that allows a family to save and build for the future and housing that does not so burden a household that advancement is impossible are critical to providing a base for the next generation to advance. A higher minimum wage also helps local businesses by providing more customers able to afford their products."

Human Rights

  • Excerpt: "We should not be wasting state taxpayer money defending the indefensible in court. Marriage equality is inevitable in the U.S. We need to move on. The next task is to pass non-discrimination legislation for the entire state."
  • Excerpt: "The legislature made great strides in passing immigration legislation. It must now pass a resolution ordering our Congressional Representatives to pass comprehensive immigration reform."
