Issues

Campaign themes

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

Education

  • Excerpt:"Our state legislature has the obligation to ensure that each student receives an equal opportunity to receive a world class education that is second to none. "

Taxes

  • Excerpt:"I want to see Minnesota close the gap between the middle class and the wealthy. If our legislature can create an equitable tax system by closing the government created tax breaks for the wealthy and making sure that everyone pays his/her fair share, our economy will grow."

Job Creation/Economy

  • Excerpt:"We can create a better economic environment by investing in employee training programs. We need to make higher education affordable so that more Minnesotans can attend universities, vocational, and technical schools to receive this training."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt:"We must create a system in which we can receive quality care, but at a more affordable rate. We must keep costs down but maintain the excellent care we currently receive."
