Campaign themes


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

Job Growth

  • Excerpt: "Delaware should increase incentives for bringing in more manufacturing businesses. I do support providing loans, tax credits or grants that include repayment provisions or job creation criteria."

Should Delaware spend more on road, bridge and transportation system improvements?

  • Excerpt: "Delaware most definitely needs to make improvements to the transportation infrastructure. One of the attractions many businesses look at before moving into an area is the ability to move product easily and affordably."
  • Excerpt: "Money to make improvements and repairs to the current infrastructure could come from public bonds sold in small to large denominations."

Would you support higher property taxes statewide to fund efforts to clean up Delaware's waterways?

  • Excerpt: "There are many ways to clean up Delaware's waterways without resorting to raising property taxes."
  • Excerpt: "The Department of Transportation should be able to fund 3 positions statewide to collect trash along the roadways, fines for industrial polluters should be stiffened to the point that makes it more expensive to pollute than to discharge into the waterways, and a "green" drainage, recycle and renewable energy plan should be part of all new construction."

Should the state cut casino taxes, or provide other kinds of financial relief?

  • Excerpt: "Delaware's casino industry should be allowed to operate more independently from the State. I believe that the ability to be truly competitive, including being able to increase revenue to invest back into the casino industry, will provide more money for the State coffers even with a tax break."

Would you support a raise next year for Delaware state employees?

  • Excerpt: "Supporting a raise for Delaware state employees, as well as a monetary increase for State pensioners, should be part of our state's fiscal responsibility."
