Issues

Campaign themes

2014

DeJuliis' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

The State should offer incentives to businesses that create jobs, provide safe work places and offer employees benefits.

Good Jobs that you can support a family on:

Raising the minimum wage – Nationwide, 70% of those working for minimum wage are women, many of whom are supporting a family.

Providing employer designed training – many jobs go unfilled because of a lack of workers with specific skills. Employer led training designed to train for those specificjobs through state funded certified apprenticeship programs. I will introduce legislation to expand the existing EARN program.

Exploring tax incentives for job creators – helping small businesses grow and expand their businesses.

The State budget is the most important legislation our State Senator must review and adopt. It is the State’s priorities expressed in dollars.


If one performs poorly on this task – this legislation – then they are ineffective.

State Tax and Budget:

Combined Reporting – prevents large multi-state corporations from shifting income to states with lower corporate tax structure or rate. Our small businesses are overburdened with taxes while large profitable multi-state corporations avoid paying their fair share of taxes for the public services they use every day. It is a loophole that must be closed. Closing this loophole will provide the additional revenue to make it fiscally responsible to lower the rate for small businesses. I will introduce legislation to create a separate tax rate for small businesses.

Spending Affordability Committee – Review the enabling legislation to determine ways to require the Executive to produce a budget within the limits set by the SAC

The public school system guarantees everyone, regardless of their place or condition in life access to an education. I strongly support our public schools and believe that every child has a right to a high quality education and a safe environment in which to learn.

Good Schools:

First Priority is an Elected School Board – more responsive to community needs and input.

Increased funding for school construction – all students deserve a safe and healthy environment in which to learn. A major concern is portable classrooms where I believe safety becomes an issue. Also the myriad issues associated with aging facilities and the growing student population in specific areas of the district.

Pre-K – advancing the opportunity for children to enter first grade prepared to learn and succeed

STEM – K-12 – creating an environment, particularly at the middle school level to encourage girls to participate in STEM though mentoring programs

College – legislation establishing loan forgiveness program for those graduating from Maryland colleges or universities who want to open a business and create jobs in Maryland.[4]
