Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Prioritizing Education
Excerpt: "I am passionate about making state budgets live up to our paramount duty to provide a good education for children. It is the key to our success as a state – and as a country. We need to continue our tradition of leading the world through innovation and need to provide great trade and technical schools so that students are prepared to enter our workforce."
  • Working for Affordable Health Coverage
Excerpt: "Locally, people are losing their homes, their futures and even their lives to diseases that strike them or their loved ones. No one deserves to carry the fear of, “What this may cost?” into their battle with a life-threatening illness. I come home motivated to make a change and right these injustices. In Olympia I was able to pass some bi-partisan proposals to help lower costs long-term."
  • Providing for Veterans and Military Families
Excerpt: "The men and women of our armed forces and their families make incredible sacrifices every day. My husband Jim retired from the Air Force many years ago and we were fortunate to receive the support of our government so that we could successfully start our family. "
  • Budget Reform & Tax Relief
Excerpt: "Consecutive years of state budget shortfalls have highlighted the need to make some fundamental reforms to our budgeting process. It is clear that we cannot continue to place a financial burden low and middle class families and that we need to take a tough look at every department to make sure they are accountable and efficient with taxpayer dollars."
  • Helping Seniors
Excerpt: "Helping out those who helped build our great community has always been a priority and I have fought to provide options for our seniors to stay in their homes and enjoy their retirement years. I have worked to provide property tax relief and long-term care options that help to keep all of our health care costs low."
