Alaina’s Beliefs

 

Time to move forward, faster on issues we can’t afford to ignore. 

The actions, or more accurately – the inactions – in Washington D.C. affect everything the people of District 12 do every day.

As a result we are raising our kids into an uncertain future, we are growing businesses in an uncertain economy without a clear path forward and most families are facing staggering healthcare costs.

healthcare

Alaina believes healthcare is a basic human right. She also believes Americans should always have choice, freedom, and independence in choosing a healthcare plan that works for them and their families. Alaina knows businesses need relief as they face, right along with their employees, the mounting costs of healthcare. She believes the Affordable Care Act was a step in the right direction, but there is much more work to do to truly make healthcare affordable in this country.

Economy & business growth

Alaina built her two businesses from the ground up. She understands that decisions in Washington can take a major toll on our community’s business, large and small. She will work for innovative solutions that help grow local businesses and provide quality, good-paying jobs through innovation, supporting trades, and standing up for aspiring and existing local business owners.

Family balance & paid leave

Happy, healthy families make for thriving businesses. As a business owner and a mother, Alaina is a fearless advocate for working Ohio families and small businesses. From flexible work hours and paid family leave  – a family’s rights are workers’ rights. But small business owners should not and cannot bear the entire cost of such initiatives. Alaina believes we have only just begun shaping the world for modern working families.

Equal Pay for Women & Minorities

American women earn .80 cents to every $1.00 a man earns. Women of color earn even less (African-American women, for instance, earn .61 cents per dollar). 

It’s time to end pay inequities in American based on gender, race or sexual orientation. Alaina is a passionate advocate for equal pay unlike her opponent who voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Opioid Crisis
Alaina’s Father was a physician who, before his death in 1999, predicted patients would become easily addicted to the narcotic painkillers now known as opioids. Today, the crisis here in District 12 must be addressed, not ignored.
Most immediately Alaina believes Congress should act to strictly regulate and enforce the proper prescription of opiates by physicians. Removing these drugs from the market should be priority #1, as opioids are commonly overprescribed. And secondly, the pharmaceutical companies absolutely must be held accountable and pay damages to the victims– Ohio communities and families affected by the dangerous and extremely addictive drugs they manufacture.
Alaina will refuse any campaign contributions from companies that manufacture opioids.
