Campaign themes

  • Protect Our Schools

Excerpt: "...as a local leader who spent five years on the PTA board, I’ll strongly oppose massive cuts to our world-class schools. Strong schools are not only important because of our kids, but because good schools protect property values and attract good jobs to our area. And it’s why I am so focused on cutting wasteful spending elsewhere – because the last place we should be cutting is from our future."

  • Cut Wasteful Spending to Improve Our Economy

Excerpt: "We have to cut waste, not our schools. That is why I have a plan to require on-going, professional audits of all state agencies to find waste and identify places to cut costs. I want to give incentives to state employees to root out waste by rewarding whistle blowers and waste-cutters."

  • Finding Transportation Solutions

Excerpt: "Time on the road is time better spent with your family. I want to help end the gridlock by giving a tax-break to businesses that let employees work from home and have flex times, improving bus and METRO to make them even more efficient, bring good paying jobs to our area to decrease commute times, and fight for our fair share so our transportation dollars don’t get shipped downstate. And while finding transportation solutions is a priority, I do not believe that our kids should compete with roads for taxpayer dollars."

  • Fighting for Our Seniors

Excerpt: "Our seniors have worked hard to build a home and a life in a community that they care about and they deserve the best. With my parents and in-laws living nearby, and her volunteer work at senior centers, I see the issues affecting seniors. That’s why I will fight against cuts to programs that help seniors in their own homes, whether it is in-home care or programs like Meals-On-Wheels."


Filler-Corn and her husband, Robert, have two children.
