Campaign themes


Ring-Erickson's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "With dwindling state revenue, the only way to turn things around is to grow our way out through business development and job creation. The answer is not to overburden taxpayers who are struggling to make ends meet. The solution requires leaders who are willing to set priorities, make tough decisions, and work together to find new ways of solving problems."
  • Education
Excerpt: "We need adequate funding, affordable college tuition, and access to vocational training. Simply throwing money at the problem isn’t good enough. We need enforce accountability by measuring school performance and student achievement."
  • Resources
Excerpt: "Clean water is vital to our shellfish industry, our salmon runs, and public health. We need a viable forest industry, adequate recreational opportunities, and responsible stewardship of areas of high environmental importance."
  • Seniors and Veterans
Excerpt: "Making sure our seniors don’t fall through the cracks during budget cuts has to be a top priority. In addition, we owe it to our returning veterans to make sure they have the resources to get an education, find a job, buy a home, and have access to appropriate counseling services to transition to civilian life."
  • Ferries and Roads
Excerpt: "It is an economic necessity to find a long-term funding solution to our ferry system that creates both stability and reliability. Our roads and highways are the glue that binds our communities together."
  • Environmental Protection and Conservation
Excerpt: "I feel I am the strong environmental candidate in this race. I have spent the past 7 plus years working to improve and protectPuget [sic] Sound."
