Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Education
Excerpt: "I will get to work on closing the achievement gap as soon as I take office. One of my top priorities is to ensure that all of our children receive a quality education regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality or background."
  • Health & Human Services
Excerpt: "No child in this state should go hunger and I will fight to end child hunger. I will be a fierce advocate for strengthening our social safety net. I will make sure low-income families have a voice in the budget decision. I will fight to protect existing funding for the services and programs and work to find new, secure funding for critical health and human services."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "No child in this state should go hunger and I will fight to end child hunger. I will be a fierce advocate for strengthening our social safety net. I will make sure low-income families have a voice in the budget decision. I will fight to protect existing funding for the services and programs and work to find new, secure funding for critical health and human services."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "When using public funds, we must also look for opportunities to hire locally, use apprenticeships and compensate workers with family wages and benefits. We need to offer creative, realistic incentives for homes and business to make deep retrofits to their buildings, thereby creating new green jobs and promoting conservation."
  • Racial Equity
Excerpt: "One of my top legislative priorities will be to pass legislation requiring the use of racial impact statements to help guide key decisions, asking policymakers to consider who will benefit and who will be burdened by specific laws and decisions. Asking these questions will lead to greater outcomes for everyone."
  • Revenue
Excerpt: "We must examine every tax exemption to ensure corporations are delivering jobs or lose their taxpayer subsidies. I believe we need progressive income tax and would support a capital gains tax. I support giving local taxing authority to our cities to let them explore options to promote equitable taxation."
  • Women’s rights
Excerpt: "Since I was 9 years old, I knew I wanted to be a human rights lawyer working for the liberation of women and oppressed people, and I have made it my life’s mission. I will continue to be fierce defender of women’s rights in the State Legislature."
