Issues

Campaign themes

Eisenhauer's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs and the Economy

  • "Modify existing economic development programs in the Commonwealth to make them revenue neutral and performance based, saving the taxpayers money and eliminating the need to borrow."
  • "Reform the corporate tax code to reduce the costs and difficulties of doing business in Pennsylvania."
  • "Eliminate layers of red tape that have long stymied development and progress for no other reason that the continuation of the bureaucratic machine."

Education

  • "Preserve the integrity and identity of the community school system, while at the same time save money and trim expenses through the potential sharing of administrative level operations among county school districts."
  • "Explore alternative funding methods beyond the property tax to effectively fund a vibrant educational system as required in Article III, Section 14 of the State Constitution."
  • "Eliminate the practice of unfunded mandates on community schools and reevaluate the litigious environment in which we force our teachers to work - an environment where they become part-teacher, part-babysitter, and part-therapist."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • "Modify existing economic development programs in the Commonwealth to make them revenue neutral and performance based, saving the taxpayers money and eliminating the need to borrow."
  • "Explore the privatization of state-provided services such as the state liquor store system and PHEAA, and explore the consolidation of services within the departmental agencies and the legislature."
  • "Responsibly reform the public employee pension system in Pennsylvania - by some estimates to be underfunded statewide by almost $6 billion - and the exploration of a transition from a defined benefit plan to a defined contribution plan for all public employees, including the legislature."
