Campaign themes


Basile's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Property taxes

  • Excerpt: "If you want to eliminate the School Property Tax - Eliminate the Party Leadership. Replace the legislature with real fighters who have the political courage to serve those who elected them, not merely the political ambition to serve themselves and those they’re politically beholden to."

On Common Core

  • Excerpt: "There are a few things government does well and many things government does not do well. Common Core is one of those initiatives the government is not and was not designed to execute."

On Pensions

  • Excerpt: "Andrew will push for pension reform so that those who have earned their retirement keep it, however those entering the system become part of a sustainable program that does not bankrupt school systems and require taxpayer bailouts."


  • Excerpt: "Creating an environment that will encourage employers to relocate to Pennsylvania and in particular to develop their operations in Berks County."
