Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Holland's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Every student in Washington State Graduates; universal preschool for our students; and more local control of outcomes in the hands of parents, students, teachers and community."
  • Aerospace and Manufacturing
Excerpt: "Connect unemployment with job retraining at community and technical colleges in high demand manufacturing positions; remove the streamline sales tax that provides a disincentive to grow manufacturing business for large-box retail; and develop more partnerships with industry, technical and community colleges to provide certificate-based employment opportunities."
  • Clean Energy
Excerpt: "Develop the next generation of clean energy employees by offering more job training programs at technical and community colleges. Hydro power is cheap clean energy source in the Pacific Northwest but we should continue to support the development of alternative energy sources that reduce greenhouse gas."
  • Criminal Justice Reform
Excerpt: "The cost of recidivism is too high, it drains taxpayer dollars, and does nothing to prepare non-violent individuals for a productive future. It is time we move toward being smart with our efforts to fight crime and end the revolving door for non-violent offenses."
