Campaign themes

According to Wade's website, her campaign themes include:

  • Jobs: "...create youth corps, senior corps, park corps, educational improvements, local food initiatives, mental health facilities, and other services for communities hardest hit by the economic irresponsibility of regressive policies that have transferred wealth away from the 99% and to the 1%."
  • Environment: "Stop subsidizing the fossil fuel industry. Immediately turn our full attention and political will to adopting alternative fuels and conservation of energy."
  • Taxes: "Those who profit from gambling with the economic future for all of us should have to contribute a percentage of their profits for improving the common good."[3]
