Campaign themes


Ross' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Create Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Creating jobs and protecting our existing workforce must be our first priority."

Grow the Economy

  • Excerpt: "Rhode Island has started to come back from the worst economic downturn in generations, and there are many positive indicators of opportunity ahead. We need build on this momentum and reverse the perception that our state is an inhospitable place to do business."

Great Education

  • Excerpt: "Access to an excellent public education and strong neighborhood schools are a fundamental right, the basic building blocks of a community where people want to live."

Women’s Rights

  • Excerpt: "In states across the country, a woman’s right to choose is under fire. We need to vigorously protect that right here in Rhode Island and I will be a strong voice in that effort."

Open Government

  • Excerpt: "I will support legislation to give Rhode Island voters the chance to clearly state that all legislators should be subject to a code of ethics that reflects our shared values of honesty, integrity, trust, and fair dealing."
