Issues

Campaign themes

According to Rohl's website, her campaign themes included:

  • Social Safety Net: "Contrary to what many would have us believe, those who rely on these programs do so through desperation and not a desire to avoid responsibilities."
  • Education: "The future of our nation depends upon having a well-educated population, not simply a well-educated upper class. Public education, an equal education for every citizen, is one of our country’s greatest inventions."
  • Jobs: "But when despite our hard work jobs are outsourced to other countries, simply to fatten the corporate bottom line, it’s not only a crisis for individual workers; it’s a crisis for our entire country."[2]
