Issues

Campaign themes

2012

According to Kenneth Capalbo's website, his 2012 campaign themes included:

  • Foreign Policy; "The idea that a foreign country can control America’s foreign policy, and send our young men and women off to another war is totally unacceptable to me..."
  • Job Creation; "There are many problems facing our economy, but the chief among them is the need to create jobs. Jobs are what are needed to solve the economic problems that our country is having."
  • Homelessness; "We should create policies that would avoid foreclosure for those homeowners who have the financial ability to continue paying (with mortgage modifications) their mortgages."[2]
