Campaign themes


Palumbo's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Government Efficiency
Excerpt: "Each newly elected Governor has the option to retain or replace the heads of each state department. This often becomes a decision based on politics rather than management skill and qualifications. The important job of keeping government running efficiently falls to these department heads."
  • Education
Excerpt: "As the state Supreme Court recently ruled in the McCleary case, we are not meeting our paramount duty as defined in the state constitution. I believe strongly that our educational system needs to be reformed and adapted to the 21st century and funding is central to that reform."
  • Economic Development
Excerpt: "The B&O tax is a tax on gross revenue that a business takes in. It is not a tax on net profits. A majority of new businesses don’t turn a profit for the first few years. But during this critical time when they are trying to grow into viable businesses they are paying taxes on every dollar in sales, in effect lengthening the span of time before struggling small business owners first realize a net profit."
  • Money in Politics
Excerpt: "It is no secret that Wall Street banks and big corporations hire teams of lobbyists to ensure the outcomes they want in Washington DC. These groups also fund our national elections through large campaign donations and now, Super PACs. What many people don’t realize is that the influence of money is also prevalent here in our state, just on a smaller scale. "
