    Whitaker on Education

    Andrew Whitaker Education Governor Candidate, Andrew Whitaker, will be addressing her campaign’s stance on Education: We support increasing, to at least the national average, education funding for all grade levels. School districts should be funded to pay teachers for extra teaching time at their contractual rate. The work teachers do is not easy. We will support public funding for remedial summer school. Teachers and support staff should receive increased compensation for all supplies used in the classroom that come out of their own pocket. They are not the ones who should be using their own personal pay to supply their students with learning materials. We support lowering the teacher to student ratio to a manageable size that allows teachers sufficient time with each student, including those in English Language Learner programs. We oppose any public funding of private educational institutions including voucher programs or Education Saving Accounts. We should invest in the public schools that serve the majority of students. We support revising the school formula to guarantee all school districts will receive fair and equitable funding. We support fully investing in a strong university and college system that allows all qualified high school graduates to get a quality college education without incurring crippling debt. We support the creation of specialized learning academies/schools with union apprenticeship programs to offer alternatives to college. We support the planting of vegetable gardens at public schools for educational and nourishment reasons. We support expanding after school programs to help reduce Southeast’s dropout rate. We support a system of peer assistance, high quality and relevant professional development driven by annual staff reviews to support all education professionals to improve instruction for students. We oppose using test scores to determine both teacher evaluation and teacher retention. A teacher’s job is to provide the best opportunity for their students and test scores don’t always measure that well. We support a curriculum that encourages a well-rounded education and does not depend on high stakes testing. We support pre-K-12 broad curriculum including without limits STEAM, science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics, world and American history, civics and government, economics, world and US geography, foreign language, vocational and technical education and at least 60 minutes of daily physical exercise. We support reducing interest rates, offering refinancing and/or forgiveness of student loans. We oppose any effort to censor or re-write American history through selective textbook writings, including any effort to impose religious doctrine on students. History shall not change due to who we like or dislike and should be based on facts. We support medically accurate, inclusive, consent-based, and developmentally appropriate sexual education in publicly funded Southeast schools. All efforts to protect pre-K-12 students from sexual misconduct from teachers, staff, and other adults on campus, as well as other students should be taken for the youth and staff’s protection.

    @NaomiBrightwell

    @naomibrightwell Extremely disappointed in our senate today. They chose to continue discrimination as opposed to remedying the situation. Keep that in mind for 2020. GOP Senators are fine with discrimination.

    @naomibrightwell The party leadership was never consulted about an immigration deal, and I have had no contact with special interest about this. #fakenews

    @naomibrightwell Proudly voted no on the Fitzgerald I Amendment. The people deserve better than spending egregious amounts of money on this wall. There are much better things we can do with that money.
  11. Andrew Whitaker Military and Veterans Governor Candidate, Andrew Whitaker, will be addressing his campaign’s stance on military and veterans: We support the use of military readiness and diplomacy to deter war. Military force should be used only as a last resort and in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. A strong military is essential to protect the freedoms of this nation, and to protect those nations who align themselves with our democratic values and call themselves our allies. We support our men and women in the armed forces because service to our country is the greatest act of self-sacrifice and patriotism. My campaign supports the full complement of current benefits and services which veterans and their families receive; however, we also support expanding those benefits to include easier access to necessary medical and behavioral services including but not limited to rehabilitative care for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). All Americans give some, but some, like our veterans, gave their all. We support fully staffing the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) so that there are no backlogs in providing service in the Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration, or the National Cemeteries Administration. Efforts to make the VA more efficient will be a key focus of our goals to improve the lives of veterans. We support the use of medical marijuana and holistic medicine in VA health facilities to reduce the use of opiates. The mental trauma of serving in the military can be an enormous stressor. Aiding our veterans in this relief is important and a priority of my administration. We support legislation that provides proactive measures to protect service members from domestic violence and sexual assault. No soldier should be subject to sexual assault or domestic violence. We can do better than that as a nation. The military should be open to all people who wish to serve regardless of gender, orientation, identity, or any other reason to discriminate against a patriot. We support granting “Honorable Discharges” to those veterans who were discharged because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and inclusive services to LGBTQ veterans and their families. The military should be more open to LGBTQ members as they can be just as patriotic as their cisgender, straight military members. We support establishing Veterans Advocates in the Southeast Department of Veterans Services (SDVS) to ensure that our veterans receive the full benefits that they are entitled to by law, in a timely manner without exploitation or harassment. This example will be one that our entire nation should model after. We support the establishment of a “Southeast Veterans Fund” to provide financial assistance to Veterans and Military Families awaiting their VA benefits. We support increases in programs for at-risk vets, including extra support for elderly and homeless Veterans. We support the expansion of the US Department of Energy “Solar Ready Vets” program to Southeast in order to educate Veterans and Military Families about work in the solar energy field. This will help with getting veterans jobs and also transform our region into a more energy independent region. We oppose the privatization of any portion of the Department of Veterans Affairs. This would not be advantageous for veterans who would be exploited by the private industries who care little about their treatment and more about how they can profit off of the servicemen and women. This campaign is about uplifting our veterans and continuing to strengthen our dignity as a nation and as a region. We must set an example to the nation as to the respect we have for those who fought to ensure peace and prosperity here in the United States as well as the world. View full PR

    Whitaker on the Economy

    Andrew Whitaker Taxation, Jobs, and the Economy Secretary Andrew Whitaker will be addressing his Southeast Governor campaign’s stance on Taxation, Jobs, and the Economy: We support sustainable trade, economic and labor policies that create livable wages. No one who is working full-time should be living in poverty. The trade wars this nation is participating in with President Trump is hurting American workers and American consumers. We will challenge these trade policies to help the working class here in the Southeast. We support local family farming and ranching and the small businesses in our communities. We support progressive tax policies while opposing inversion practices that result in tax avoidance of U.S. taxes. Businesses should not be able to avoid paying taxes due to sketchy offshore accounts or by outsourcing jobs and plants elsewhere. Again, this will hurt small businesses who cannot compete with the noncompetitive practices of large corporations taking advantage of loose tax policies. These big businesses should pay their fair share just as the small businesses are already doing by playing by the rules and by contributing to the strength of this nation. We support vigorous use of anti-trust laws to ensure a competitive marketplace. President Theodore Roosevelt was known as a Trust-Buster. His example will be modeled to protect the competitiveness of our economy. We support programs that protect consumers from predatory loan practices. We support restoration of the corporate Alternative Minimum Tax. We support encouragement of full payment of tax responsibility and therefore encourage the full funding of federal and state tax collection agencies. We support fair and equal access to business capital regardless of the company’s size. We support effective government policies that stimulate small businesses and small business growth. Small businesses deserve a nation that gives them equal opportunity to succeed. We support business incubators and mentoring opportunities for minority and female owned businesses. We oppose any employer’s attempt to shift their costs of doing business onto future generations. We support reinstating and strengthening of Glass-Steagall. We support programs that prohibit the collection and dissemination of personal information. View full PR

    @AndrewWhitaker

    @andrewwhitaker I a pleased to see the Student Non-Discrimination Act edging closer to UC. No student should be discriminated against due to sexual orientation or identity.
