Campaign themes

2014

Bailey explained his reasons for running in 2014 in an interview with West Allis Now:

There are many reasons people should vote for me, but mostly I want to run again for the children — to provide them a solid foundation that we will continue to build upon to be successful in today's world. Other reasons include my constant interest in the schools as my grandchildren attend them. Secondly, I care about how tax dollars are spent. Also, I have been heavily involved in school and community activities. Being on the board has been a great experience and I would like to continue. I am still up to the challenge and look for your support.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[9]
