Issues

Campaign themes

2012

The following quotes come from Bruno's campaign website:[2]

Education: "...Accountability in education is a must. However, the FCAT system has yielded consequences in the form of teaching-to-the-test, domination of the classroom, and paralyzing intimidation of students. We must work with local school boards, administrators and teachers to develop meaningful solutions to the FCAT problem...."

Environment: "...Tallahassee politicians need to balance smart economic development with protecting our natural resources. We cannot let a few reckless companies damage our drinking water, pollute our springs and destroy our beaches...."

Economy: "...We need to be serious about investing in economic development, but also investing in our teachers and students."
