Campaign themes

On her campaign website Crawford lists five main issues:[3]

  • Creating Jobs: "As our Republican State Representative, Carolyn Crawford will work to improve our pro-business atmosphere in Mississippi by keeping taxes low, getting government out of the way, and reducing burdensome regulations that hinder job growth."
  • Lowering Healthcare Costs: "Carolyn Crawford is running for representative to fight to lower our healthcare costs and protect healthcare providers by standing up to the trial lawyers."
  • Improving Education: "Crawford understands that we must improve education by starting at the local level. Crawford will work to ensure that money is in the classroom."
  • Cutting Wasteful Spending: "A fiscal conservative, Republican Carolyn Crawford knows we must reduce spending in Jackson because we cannot continue to pass debt onto Mississippi's future generations."
  • Public Retirement System: "Crawford agrees with Lt. Governor Bryant's comment that said, 'I will not support any plan to eliminate the 13th check or change the arrangement current retirees and current employees have with PERS.'"

Personal
