Issues

Campaign Themes

Singh's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt:"Michigan must reverse its current trend of cutting funding to our schools. We cannot compete in the global economy if our students are falling behind. Sam knows that a quality education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of financial background, so that all children will have an opportunity to achieve success."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt:"Michigan is uniquely positioned in a number of industries including advanced manufacturing, alternative energy, information technology and global trade. The only thing holding us back from being world leaders is our lack of investment and commitment to these industries. Sam knows that we can and must do better in order to grow the industries in our own back yard."

Environment

  • Excerpt:"Sam believes that we need to set a long term plan for clean energy and energy consumption. Creating a plan that looks to the near and distant future creates stability and helps us structure our decisions. We need to commit to investing in alternative and green energy jobs as a way to diversify our economy and secure our long-term conservation efforts."

Progressive Issues

  • Excerpt:"Sam strongly condemns the attacks on organizations that provide health and counseling services to women. Regulating women’s bodies through legislation to score cheap political points is wrong. Partner benefits, second parent adoption and marriage equality are important issues to the LGBT community and the cause of social justices."
