Campaign themes


Dent's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Growing a stronger economy
Excerpt: "Marques will fight to pass laws to provide more incentives in place for small, minority owned businesses, and non-profit organizations for hiring local residents. In-source is the key to a boost in the economy."
  • Community resources, quality education and safer learning environments
Excerpt: "Marques will continue to press lawmakers to ensure that high-quality affordable Child Care subsidy payments are adequate and available for working families as well as less fortunate families; fight for more funding to be available to properly staff after-school programs, provide a light snack for the children, and quality learning facilities, programs, and community centers."
  • Safer streets
Excerpt: "Marques will continue to be an advocate for safer communities. He will urge lawmakers to listen to the concerns of safety by the residents, and work with law enforcement to bridge the gap in communication, and build strong relationships with the community leaders, so that the residents can once again feel safe within their communities, and criminals are brought to justice."
