Campaign themes


Finn highlighted the following issues:[2]

Business and the economy: "We need to evaluate the 235 Tax Expenditure Programs on the books in RI. Which ones are encouraging increased employment? Which ones are really giving incentives for innovation and growth? How can we encourage reinvestment in Rhode Island instead of business’ taking their capital elsewhere?"[2]

Education: "We need to strengthen our public education system. Investment in public education is not only essential to the individual receiving it, but it is also essential to the economic development and future prosperity of our state."[2]

Public Transportation and Bridges: "Where were our local representatives on this issue a year ago? We need to make sure the study being done by the Bridge and Toll Authority is going to include local representation, and we need to look at how we develop more uniform and equitable policies regarding the distribution of state financial transportation costs imposed on us."
