Jon was serious when he said he wanted to listen first and talk second. In September of 2013, Friends of Jon Hoadley launched an issue survey to see what people in Kalamazoo cared about, who they looked up to, and what they thought of Kalamazoo. By analyzing the results of the issue surveys, we are able to work on the issues people in Kalamazoo care about and tell the stories important to our supporters.
We just received the results of our issue survey and can confirm Kalamazoo is a community that wants progressive values put into policy. The image linked is an Info Graphic we developed to represent the issues our supporters feel most strongly about.
Sixty-seven percent of people who responded to our issue survey felt it was very important that our State Representative supports progressive values.
Supporting progressive values is the very premise Jon Hoadley’s campaign. Jon is a young, progressive voice in Kalamazoo--a voice exactly in line with the voices of so many other folks in the district.
Over 70 percent of our responders support a woman’s right to reproductive health and marriage equality.
Both of these issues are extremely prevalent in our campaign. When elected, Jon will take the necessary steps to reverse our state’s backward legislation on these issues.
With the current state of the Michigan legislature, we need people who can champion our shared values, build consensus from a progressive viewpoint, and actually pass legislation to get the job done.
Additional statistics about where our supporters stand on issues can be found in the infographic. Go check it out.
