Campaign themes


Coffia's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Representing YOU

  • Excerpt: "I am the only local 104th candidate who isn’t accepting PAC money or out-of-state donations. This keeps me accountable to the voters rather than special interests."

Jobs & Business

  • Excerpt: "We need a vibrant local and regional economy that offers living wage jobs to our community. This area is already an attractive place to live, and I believe we must work to enhance the desirability of Grand Traverse County through place-making."


  • Excerpt: "One of my top legislative goals will be pushing for equal funding for all our students. Our children in TCAPS and Kingsley schools receive the lowest per pupil funding allotted by the state; we cannot allow this to continue."


  • Excerpt: "Access to affordable healthcare is a human right. It is past time this nation finds a way to join other developed nations in providing it for our citizens. I embrace efforts to help Grand Traverse County residents get fair and equal access to healthcare, and to adopt a healthy lifestyle in general. "


  • Excerpt: "A huge part of our economy in Grand Traverse County is tourism. Anything that has the potential to poison or damage our water, our bays, lakes, rivers and streams should be responsibly researched and regulated."
