Campaign themes

2010-2011

On his 2010 campaign site, Antonacci details his campaign themes:

"As your representative, I would continue to investigate how our local government spends our tax dollars. I know we can create local jobs for our residents and keep taxes under control while protecting the needs of our young people, seniors, neighborhoods, health, police and environment. I am opposed to corporate overdevelopment, irresponsible spending and politicians who take their offices in government for granted and selfish personal gain. I am for improving and maintaining our community facilities, protecting our resources and holding government accountable for what it does and what it spends. I believe in “Community First,” and in keeping the doors of government open."
