Reives on the Issues
Our public schools, community colleges and university system have been under attack. We need to fight back by raising teacher salaries to the national average, reduce class size, restore job protections and put resources into our classrooms.
Jobs and the Economy
We need to ensure that we are prepared for the future and not just rely on the past. We need schools, community colleges and universities that prepare our students for the technological age and we need to work to attract high tech manufacturing jobs that pay good wages to well trained employees.
Our natural resources are key to our economic development. Clean water and air is essential to attracting industry and protecting our tourist industry. Wise stewardship of our renewable resources and minerals is essential to provide long-term benefits instead of short-term gain.
The legislature has been trying to turn back the clock on women’s health and choice issues. We need to fight back hard for the sake of our daughters and granddaughters to protect their heath and their future.
Democracy is the foundation of our political system and we need to make voting more accessible, not less. I’ll fight to reverse the policies passed by the General Assembly that try to disenfranchise certain segments of our population.
