Issues:

Great Lakes: “Because our way of life in northern Michigan is largely dependent upon natural resources and the Great Lakes, we must promote tourism, protect our water, and manage natural resources using proven scientific methods.” Allor does not elaborate on any plans to accomplish these goals.

Local Control: “More decisions concerning our communities, schools and public safety need to be made at the local level – not in Lansing or Washington, DC. Private property rights must be protected, and we must defend our 2nd Amendment rights and preserve our outdoor heritage for our generation and for our children and grandchildren.” Again, does not elaborate on any plans to accomplish these goals.

Education: “To prepare students and workers for a career, we must provide quality instruction in the classroom and expand vocational training. Achieving funding equity for northern Michigan schools is important to ensure that our students and teachers are given the necessary tools to succeed. We must also demand that more decisions are made at the local level by parents and community leaders in northern Michigan – not by bureaucrats in Lansing or Washington, DC.” Allor does not provide details on how she plans to accomplish her education goals, or which decisions should be made at the local level.
