Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Consumer Protection
Excerpt: "Shelly’s career has been largely devoted to protecting consumers and small businesses facing bankruptcy, foreclosure or crushing debt. Hardworking people can be ruined by debt accumulated through a failed business or unemployment, a medical crisis, or the disastrous housing market of recent years. In Olympia, Shelly will fight for tax, financial and consumer protection policies that will help middle class and low-income people who struggle."
  • Higher Education
Excerpt: "A graduate of the University of Washington, Shelly strongly believes that we must ensure that our children are able to attend great public schools and universities like the one in our backyard. In Olympia, Shelly will be a strong advocate for protecting higher education funding for our children and our economy."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Everyone should have access to high quality affordable health care. In her law practice, Shelly has worked with people who have been financially crippled by huge medical bills. We need a system where people have access to the preventative care they need and at a price that everyone can afford."
  • Housing
Excerpt: "Shelly has served on and volunteered with several boards and organizations that deal with the issue of homelessness. She is a current board director of Building Changes, an advocacy organization that delivers services to homeless populations. She has also served on the Puget Sound Jewish Coalition on Homelessness and volunteers with Teen Feed and the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness’ “One Night Count.” We need leaders who will fight for the social safety net and not look away from the poorest of our neighbors."
