Issue positions

In an interview with the Philadelphia Weekly, Glover outlined several key issues that he plans to emphasize during his gubernatorial campaign:[4]

  • "Replace agribusiness with smaller farms [and] promote regional economies rather than global corporations"
  • "Shift from pampering insurance companies to promoting regional health co-ops," "reduce the power of commercial banks" and "cancel college student debt"
  • "Enact a progressive income tax"
  • "Shift resources from prisons to education" while pursuing curriculum reform and "require that public education be nonprofit"
  • Implement a "green budget" that "would shift from nuclear and coal to efficiency," "expand solar tax credits" and "shift from highways to transit and rail"
