Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Dorholt's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "I will fully support our institutions of higher education, one of the best investments Minnesota has ever made"

E-12 Education

  • Excerpt: "Investing in education is the financially smart choice. We invest now or we pay more in the future. It is time to stop borrowing from our children’s future with cheap budget gimmicks that wreak havoc on our school districts and leave them at the mercy of levies."

Higher Education

  • Excerpt: "An affordable education needs to be accessible to every student who chooses to pursue higher learning. Rising college tuition forces students to choose: food and rent, or books and tuition."

Jobs, Community Development, Economy

  • Excerpt: "Making Minnesota work will take a team effort. Small businesses in our communities often struggle with regulations, and have difficulty providing quality health insurance to their employees."

Budget

  • Excerpt: "I will work toward a budget that develops our long-term needs and does not take out a loan on our children’s future."
