Mike MorganOn The Issues
VALUE STATEMENT: Every child – whatever their zip code – deserves a sound, basic education, with access to a quality public school that has teachers who are well-qualified in the subjects they teach. Teachers should be paid as professionals to attract and keep the best and brightest to instruct our children. Public schools should teach the true and accurate history of our state.
Economy + Jobs
VALUE STATEMENT: We need a 21st-century economy that works for everyone. Our economy should encourage entrepreneurs and investment in industries of the future. It should create jobs that pay at least a living wage. It should offer access and opportunity for everyone to improve their lives and pursue their dreams through hard work. Our economy should offer equal pay for equal work – regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or sexual ID.
ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE
VALUE STATEMENT: Quality, affordable healthcare is a fundamental human right that should be accessible to every North Carolinian, regardless of their background or residence. All residents have a right to comprehensive healthcare and autonomy in reproductive choices, discussed privately between patient and doctor, and not shared with the state. It is vital to address and rectify racial healthcare disparities, ensuring equality across all counties. Additionally, we must work towards making prescription drug prices affordable for all, reinforcing our commitment to the well-being of every individual in our state.
Criminal Justice Reform
VALUE STATEMENT: Every citizen in our state deserves to live in a community where they feel safe and protected, where justice is administered fairly and equitably, and where we collectively address the root causes of violence and addiction. We envision a future where gun violence, drug overdoses, traffic fatalities, and inequalities within the criminal justice system are significantly reduced, and every individual is afforded equal protection under the law.
VALUE STATEMENT: Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of gender. This is a simple and fair principle. Women require equal access to the economy and the workplace, the ability to decide if and when to become pregnant, and the right to earn equal pay for equal work. They must have access to affordable healthcare, abortion services, and quality childcare, enabling them to participate fully in government, the corporate world, and the political sphere.
VALUE STATEMENT: Full equality should not depend on who you love or how you identify. LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. No employer should be able to discriminate against someone because of their sexual identity or orientation. Gender-affirming health care is a determination that parents, their children, and medical professionals should make…NOT politicians.
VALUE STATEMENT: Climate change poses undeniable threats, ushering in intensified storms and elevated sea levels, but North Carolina is ready to lead in conservation and green energy. Our vision is a state resilient against climate impacts, where sustainable practices support both businesses and homeowners without the burden of increased energy bills. By embracing innovations like electric vehicles and the reduction of dependence on unpredictable gas prices and foreign oil, we are not only safeguarding our communities and economy but are also contributing to a worldwide decrease in greenhouse gas emissions for a sustainable, prosperous future for all.
VALUE STATEMENT: Democracy signifies power for the people, yet actions by the Republican-led supermajority General Assembly defy this principle. Voting – a cornerstone of democracy – has been compromised, highlighted by the Supreme Court dilution of the Voting Rights Act, thereby enabling restrictive practices amounting to voter suppression. The surge in redistricting cases—74 filed in 27 states—illustrates the widespread challenges and the ongoing battle for fair representation. This situation underscores the urgent need for action to protect our democratic principles
