Presidential Campaign Project
Transcript of Presidential Campaign Project
Campaign Ran By: Priya Allen, Avery Barshay, Sharri Park, Sarah Tiffin, and Sabrina Wong
Most unregistered voters are found to be mostly in support of democratic values, so we are aiming to get citizens motivated and excited to register and vote
We plan on visiting colleges in most of our swing states, to rally up young voters.
We also plan on separating our campaign into different regions (North, South, West, East, and Midwest), to ensure efficiency and promotion.
Most candidates focus most of their campaign on their swing states. However, we intend on focusing not only on gaining votes in the swing states, but also in states that are leaning or will vote for Ingram to ensure victory and equality between states.
Many citizens are no longer enthusiastic about politics or presidency campaigns, so we want to bring people back and get them excited about our policies and ideals.
Good Morning and thank you all for joining me here today to listen and consider me, Allyson Ingram, as your next President. I was a lawyer for fourteen years before I realized that
there was a bigger cause to be represented in America,
and so I took on the job as a Congresswoman. Over these past couple of years, I’ve watched as our government has tried to make improvements and address the concerns of the people. However, there still remains many issues that need solutions; problems such as education, climate change and foreign relations, affect not just the individual, but our country as a whole. When I became a Congresswoman I hoped to make an impact in these areas, but I soon realized that to truly make a difference for our country I would have to go a few steps further.
Back in my home in Michigan, my husband and I take pride in teaching our children the importance of our environment. We encourage them to value our resources and be aware of how small changes in our lifestyle can have a much bigger impact on the world around us. However, the concept of living sustainably and trying to reduce our impact, is not something all Americans practice. By creating new policies that promote and make available the use of clean energy technology we can shift our spending from oil and gas to other renewable energy options. In such an advanced age as today, we should no longer have to depend on fossil fuels and instead use our knowledge to apply it in ways that benefit us.
Another issue is the problem of education. Why is that we call it “Higher” education when we rank 36th in the world and continue to have high school dropouts? We need to create policies that ensure schools receive proper funding, in equal parts to academics and the arts, while also creating avenues in which teachers can receive better training.
Lastly, we reach the issue of Foreign Policy. Being world leaders, we’ve brought it upon ourselves to always reach out to other countries in their times of need. Although, these causes have all been worthy, they’ve often left us with many more issues to solve. Instead of always relying on military involvement, I say we withdraw our troops while still working to promote peace and cooperation with our foreign relations. By keeping our soldiers home, we can work to fix our own problems, like education and environmental problems. After all, how can we fix others if we ourselves need some fixing?
Energy and Environment
Congresswoman Ingram's position on foreign affairs is reserved, but she will do what is necessary to keep the peace and cooperation amongst America and other countries.
She wants to restrain from sending troops to other countries,
to protect our men and women as much as possible.
However, she will send help in terms of technology to other countries to promote peace and to prevent major conflicts from happening.
She plans to not involve U.S. troops in other countries' conflicts unless they pose threat to the citizens of America and the country as a whole.
She wants to make America's domestic policies dominant and work towards a healthy, national progress to regain leadership amongst nations.
Allyson Ingram believes America needs to fix our educational and environmental problems before focusing on the rest of the world.
Congresswoman Ingram aims to advance clean energy technology and to address the changing climate
To address climate change she plans:
-to tackle pollution through policies to monitor waste disposal and off shore oil drilling
-to invest in more research for energy efficient transportation (including public transportation and motor vehicle technology)
She wants to introduce more clean energy options while decreasing levels of oil imports
These renewable energy options -including: wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, and hydroelectric- will be developed as affordable and efficient alternatives
to focus on Foreign Policy, Energy and Environment, and Education. The basis of her platform is to be the voice of the people, targeting her policies to benefit as many Americans as possible.
Allyson Ingram supports high-quality education through a well rounded curriculum that is engaging for students.
Congresswoman Ingram believes all schools should be a safe and comfortable environment that encourages teaching and learning.
Rather than laying off teachers, Ingram wants to hire more teachers which will result in smaller class sizes. Smaller classes allow teachers to meet the individual needs of all their students and ultimately creates a better learning environment.
Ingram also plans to put more emphasis on extra-curricular and after school programs to enhance the development of children. By installing a sense of competence, belonging, usefulness, and influence into their daily lives, kids have a greater chance of being successful academically and throughout their lives.

- To win over Florida, Ingram will have to bring in a bit of her moderate policies to appeal as much as possible to republican voters, as well as democratic voters.
- She will work hard and push her campaign in Florida to win over the 29 electoral votes that she needs to win.
