Issues

Campaign themes

Mercado-Arroyo's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt:"Having worked in Public education I know what's working and what needs to be fixed. Let me take these insights to Harrisburg. Let’s put the public back in charge of public education; furthermore, let’s provide school choice in education."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt:"Let’s do what we need to do to provide for those less fortunate than us. Pennsylvania already has programs in place that provide health care services for the poor. If need be, we can expand these programs to fill any gaps. This will prove to be, by far, the less expensive remedy for our state’s health care woes. By the way, abortion and contraception are not health care."

Jobs & Taxes

  • Excerpt:"I am a small businessperson, I understand how difficult the government makes it for an employer to hire and maintain employees. I will take this knowledge to Harrisburg and demand the government mind its own business and let us mind to ours."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt:"Government cannot be guided by what it wants to do but what its taxpayers will allow and can afford it to do. Isn’t it time for legislators to put “we the taxpayer” first when they write the state budget? I believe it is."

Energy Independence

  • Excerpt:"Promote and encourage the responsible development of coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear energy. Marcellus Shale is essential for creating new jobs. We must facilitate efforts to make our state the leader in energy independence. We can make it happen."
