Issues

Hall lists his campaign platform on his website:[2] "Recovery begins with the revitalization of the basic infrastructure of this nation. We need to repair roads, bridges, schools, elderly housing, quality day-care centers, and so much more. The idea of spending money on infrastructure is working America is investing billions on these kinds of projects, except we are doing it for Iraq. I believe we should invest this money at home. Good jobs lead to strong families and stable communities.

I believe that all children should have access to an education that challenges and inspires them, regardless of their economic status. We must provide our students with quality public schools and teachers that can equip them with 21st Century skills such as creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and innovation. Along with these skills, we need to re-emphasize Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) education in our curriculum. These are the abilities our children will need in order to compete in the global job market, and these shouldn’t be limited to a privileged few.
