Reinvestment into both the educational infrastructure and compensation for K-12 and higher learning, establishment of a living wage within the state. Our state needs to prepare itself for competing in a global economy while also insuring the next generation has the resources to do so.
Yes, a living wage allows for those who work 40-hours a week to live in dignity and have the resources to explore entrepreneurship or learning of new skill sets.
I believe we should move towards 3rd party independent redistributing focused on competitive races and localized representation.
Large scale reinvestment into the infrastructure to build new schools to provide for the growing population, we also need to improve compensation packages for teachers to incentivize retention.
Absolutely, we must all be accountable to each other.
I support a ban to off-shore drilling and fracking while also prioritizing investment into renewable energy sources.
