Campaign themes


Engle’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • My goals for the 45th District
  • Excerpt: "1. To provide for the security, protection, and common benefit for the citizens of the Commonwealth by supporting local government and buffering the state from burdensome legislation, regulation, and taxation imposed by the Federal Government"
  • Excerpt: "2. Address the existing onerous legislation present within the laws and codes of the Commonwealth, in partnership with localities and businesses, to ensure that no other state is better positioned for innovation and economic growth"
  • Excerpt: "3. Follow through on the obligations we have to our children, disabled, Veterans, elderly, and other protected populations to stand as an example for the rest of the country in efficiency and effectiveness in our execution of earned entitlement programs"
  • Excerpt: "4. Position the Commonwealth for the future by undergoing a paradigm shift and looking to local solutions instead of trying to legislate everything"
  • Excerpt: "5. Protect individual liberties by ensuring that constitutional principles provide a filter for policy options, and neither emotion nor individual opinion drive legislation nor regulation that further burden our commonwealth, localities, businesses or individual citizens."
