Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Davis' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Public Education

  • Excerpt: "Every child deserves a high quality education in a well-funded public school. Diverting funds to private and charter schools undermines the quality of education the vast majority of NC students receive. Keep public money in our public schools as our constitution intended."

Environment And Fracking

  • Excerpt: "We should maintain a moratorium on fracking until NC can review proposed environmental rules being drafted by the MEC."

Voter Suppression

  • Excerpt: "Re-instate Sunday voting, longer early voting, and return to the ID system that NC has used for decades with out fraud."

Tax Policy And The Budget

  • Excerpt: "The tax burden rests with 80% of North Carolinians. The other 20% are those who could afford to pay more taxes to offset the burden on family paychecks. One simple solution is to stop legislating tax-loopholes for corporations. Restoring the one-cent sales tax would provide additional funds for public schools."

Animal Rights

  • Excerpt: "Animals should be cared for in a humane and socially responsible environment. North Carolina must pass laws to protect animals. Mistreatment, abuse, neglect, and intentional harm should be met with serious penalties to the fullest extent of our laws."
