Campaign themes

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

Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt:"Ronald Rabin understands the number one issue facing our state is getting our economy back on track. Ronald knows what it takes to create jobs and grow a business. The solution is simple. When government gets out of the way, businesses can grow, hire and prosper."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt:"Ronald Rabin opposes all tax increases. Families have to work within their budgets and Ronald believes government should be no different. As our state Senator, he will work to set budget priorities and fund critical state services first."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Our state’s high school drop out rate is over 30%. This is unacceptable. Ronald Rabin believes the best way to support education is to fund the classroom directly and not wasteful bureaucracies. When money is sent to the classroom and sidesteps administrations, it does more good for the child."

Transportation

Healthcare

  • Excerpt:"onald understands one of the highest expenses for small business owners and families is their healthcare coverage. He supports allowing employees to use their pretax income to purchase private healthcare. Also, Ronald supports “flexible benefits” which will allow families to choose plans that best suits their needs."
