Issues

Campaign Themes

Rajkovich's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Re-evaluate Corporate Tax Cuts

  • Excerpt:"Corporate tax cuts should be earned - with a set of guidelines based on job hires, in-sourcing and environmental standing."

Repeal Emergency Financial Law

  • Excerpt:"A financial expert assistance program that would advise & help form recovery plans should be considered rather than replacing municipal governments with Emergency financial managers."

Support Collective Bargaining

  • Excerpt:"I do support the protection of collective bargaining. The U.S. economy regularly improves when management and labor negotiate."

Small Business Tax Cuts

  • Excerpt:"I support tax cuts to firms that hire and retain workers, including our vets."

Restoration of Public Funds in Education

  • Excerpt:"Public taxes support public education not private for-profit schools. Good schools create investment, jobs, opportunity, healthy economies, security."

Rajkovich ran in the 2012 election for Michigan House of Representatives District 66. He ran unopposed in the August 7 Democratic primary and was defeated by incumbent Aric Nesbitt (R) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012. [2]

Campaign themes

"Government's priority is to provide services for what the public cannot provide individually. Generally speaking, government serves for the general good, for economic growth, public health and a strong, secure defense.

I want to see collective bargaining protected, a restoration of low-income tax credits and a resinding or replacment for commerical personal property tax revenues. I would like to see an increase in minimum wage to create spending power and to increase small business earnings. I want to see recent worker's compensation changes re-visited, reconsidered -- to see windfall corporate tax cuts earned -- tied to job hires and environmental standing and a restoration of full-funding to public education to create investment and jobs, thus a strong economy. I want the right to vote to be a fair, straightforward process; assured for every citizen."[3]
