Issues

Campaign themes

Cann's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Quality Education

  • Excerpt:"If we are committed to building an economy that competes on the global scale, students have to be prepared to enter a 21st century workforce with the right skills."

Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt:"It is essential that Washington continues to attract new business, and does so in a fair and equitable way. Finding new avenues to create green jobs is one way to achieve this goal."

New Revenue

  • Excerpt:"I am willing to travel to any corner of Washington to make the case for revenue. Given accurate and complete information, I believe the people of Washington would support reasonable revenue options to help get our state of its current budget crisis and start on the road to economic recovery."

Environmental Protection

  • Excerpt:"We live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The natural amenities we have here in the Puget Sound and throughout Washington are second to none. I want to make it my job to be a responsible steward of our environment."

Transportation Choices

  • Excerpt:"Maintenance of our current roadways is proven to be a good investment. The return on investment is 6:1 for every dollar spent on road maintenance, based on a report by the American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials. We must continue to invest in smart policies that will pay off in the future."
