Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Arnold's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[3]

Control

  • Excerpt: "Gia believes in lessening the restrictions and mandates set forth by state government, reducing control, and restoring the power back into the hands of the people through local government and community involvement."

Common Core

  • Excerpt: "Gia believes this state’s educations system is failing our children. Our current public school system has adopted a curriculum that is supposed to be one size fits all. Not only does it attempt to make cookie cutter replicas of all students, it fails to recognize that each child is truly unique."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Representing the 3 counties with highest property taxes per value in the state, Gia believes in reducing taxes for homeowners, as well as across the board. She would like to cut unfunded mandates as well as analyze large spending programs to find areas where expenses can be reduced."

Freedom

  • Excerpt: "Gia believes in a small, limited government, which allows all people to live freely. She believes that all New Yorkers are equal under the guaranteed equal rights under Constitution, and should be able to do as they please so long as they are not causing injustice towards another."

2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: "Gia is opposed to any measure of gun control and would like to see the SAFE Act fully repealed. She would also like to see that it become easier for law abiding citizens in New York State to obtain a handgun permit. Instead of targeting law abiding gun owners, she would like to see a focus on stricter penalties for violent criminals as well as gun safety in classrooms and readily available for those interested."
