Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Sanchez's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Better Schools

  • "Restructured school days"
  • "Restructured school year"
  • "Magnet school, 4-12 grades"

More Jobs

  • "Encourage new entrepreneurial initiatives by providing that business start-ups not have to pay state and city related taxes for their first three years of operation, the most difficult period for new businesses."
  • "Creating and expanding enterprise zones in distressed communities where specialized industries, such as light manufacturing and alternative energy companies, can obtain incentives and tax subsidies/deductions/credits that are responsible and innovative."
  • "In cooperation with local schools, such as Community College of Philadelphia, establishing and supporting programs that train displaced workers and unskilled people in order for them to be able to obtain living wage jobs."

Safer Streets

  • "Increased funding to support Community Policing efforts that have shown results in bringing community involvement that encourages cooperation and information sharing."
  • "Increased funding for neighborhood-based town watch monitoring efforts."
  • "Increased funding for Drug Courts which seek to treat offenders rather than imprison them. Research indicates that drug treatment is much less expensive and much more effective in decreasing recidivism than incarceration."
