Issues

Campaign themes

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

Protecting Our Schools

  • Excerpt:"I’m frustrated by the constant budget cuts and legislative threats to our excellent schools. Unlike the current leadership in Lansing, I won’t sacrifice education to serve special interests. I will defend our schools and fight for our kids."

Supporting Our Middle Class

  • Excerpt:"The current tax plan has kept the income tax rate high, raised taxes on pensioners, eliminated the child deduction, and even singled out a tax increase on library employees. I have a different vision. I will support common sense tax reform that puts ideology aside and our middle class first."

Making Our Government Work

  • Excerpt:"I won’t let partisan politics or special interests strong arm me into voting against this community. I’ll cast every vote to serve the best interests of my neighbors."
