Issues

Campaign themes

Goodwin's website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Alabama First
Excerpt: "When it comes to serving in the Alabama State House of Representatives, the first priority of a Legislator should be putting the needs of the district first."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "The biggest issue facing Alabama and District 9 is unemployment. While nearly 20 states showed positive job growth since June 2009, Alabama has continued to leak jobs out of the state, with more than 90,000 lost jobs since 2000."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Education has consistently been a top priority for Alabama Democrats, and the next District 9 Representative must be able to aggressively tackle the budget shortfalls facing our state while understanding cutting basic money to classrooms is not the place to start."
  • Infrastructure
Excerpt: "Alabama's infrastructure is key to sustaining our local economy - from producing the power we use to light our schools, to distributing our water supply to our local crops, to paving the roads we use to ship goods from one corner of the state to another."
  • Ethics
Excerpt: "In today's political culture, we need to hold members of our political system responsible for their actions. Too many times, special interest groups and political action committees have too large of an influence over our elected members."
