Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Watson's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Strong Voice for the Community

  • Excerpt: "I will be a strong voice for our families and community. I am running as a citizen who is tired of career politicians that forget what really matters outside of Harrisburg. I live in East Deer with my beautiful wife, Nikki, daughter Charlotte, son Theodore, and newly born baby girl, Truly Grace."

Reform

  • Excerpt: "I promises to never vote for a legislative pay raise and I will vote to reduce the size of the legislature and will work to end the costly out-of-touch perks in Harrisburg. Instead of voting with political bosses or special interests from Philadelphia, I will work for us."

Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I see and understand the burden of high property taxes. I will fight to institute basic reforms like freezing property taxes of seniors and promises to insure that gaming money that was promised for property tax relief is being received. I would support a fresh property tax system that is affordable for homeowners and sufficiently provides sufficient education funding."

Education

  • Excerpt: "I know how important it is to provide the best education to our children. I will work to increase state support for our local school districts stabilizing education funding, which will improve education and reduce the financial burden placed on local taxpayers."
