Campaign themes

Willis' website highlights the following campaign themes:[3]

Strong Schools for Our Children

  • Excerpt:"Strong schools are essential to our future and to our economy. Livingston County schools are some of the lowest-funded in the state and have been badly hurt by deep cuts in state funding. I will work to provide more funding to public schools."

Fairness for Senior Citizens

  • Excerpt:"Our senior citizens worked hard their entire lives and saved for their retirement. They deserve to live in security and dignity. Seniors should not be faced with unexpected tax increases. I will vote to repeal the unfair tax on pensions which paid for tax cuts for businesses."

Protect Our Jobs

  • Excerpt:"As a nurse, I was a member of the nurses union at the University of Michigan Hospital. Workers have the right to form a union and collectively bargain. It is imperative that we promote the freedom of working people to have a say about their wages, benefits, and working conditions."
