Position Papers
Debra's Vision for Our Lives and Our District
It is difficult to summarize all of my ideas on the issues that are so important to all of us. Therefore, please visit my website at http://www.debrawhitmore.com
Campaign Reform
Many Americans wish to reform the financing of campaigns. What we must remember is that the same institution responsible for the reforms consists of the very people seeking to be reelected.
The Importance of Education
In the United States, the most democratic institution we have is public education. We need to improve this system while providing access, equality and opportunity to all of our students.
