|North Carolina Committee Assignments, 2013|
McManus' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"In addition to the impact on education, cutting funding that pays for teachers and other state employees just compounds our budget problems as more people are out of work, drawing unemployment, and not spending on goods and services."
Fracking, Energy & The Environment
- Excerpt:"When speaking, I've compared fracking to an experimental medical procedure. It may have potential at some point in the future but we are simply not in a position to take the risks at this time. I don't want our area to be a testing ground."
Jobs & the Economy
- Excerpt:"I want to create incentives for green energy development in our district. This is one of the fastest growing sectors of new jobs and we should be taking advantage of this. North Carolina has been ranked as a business friendly state but we have to continue to improve our district's image as a high quality place to live and raise a family."
The War on Women's Reproductive Health Rights
- Excerpt:"I vehemently oppose the state requirements on ultrasounds and waiting periods for women seeking an abortion, and I fully support funding Planned Parenthood, because they provide many health services for many women who would not otherwise receive treatment."
Voter I. D. Laws
- Excerpt:"I oppose the Voter ID bill. First, because it is unnecessary. Research from the NC State Board of Elections says from the years 2004-2010 shows there were 5 cases of voter fraud per 1,000,000 ballots cast."
