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.
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.
