Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Perro's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Public Safety

Many of Worcester's neighborhoods have crime rates well above the state average. As State Representative I will work hard to increase funding to police and fire programs so we can put more police on the streets and ensure our communities are safe for our children and families.

Public Education

I will fight to improve education by securing a budget for Worcester Public Schools that not only exceeds the minimum foundation budget, but also brings accountability and reform. I strongly oppose increasing the cap on charter schools unless the state fully funds those schools, so the financial burden isn't on local tax payers to foot the bill.

Independent Leadership

As the neighborhoods' choice, I will not be beholden to any special interests groups or the big whigs on Beacon Hill. I will stand up for what is right and won't be afraid to out the best interests of our neighborhoods and working families first.[2][3]
