Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We can fix this by creating jobs with family-sustaining wages, imposing a realistic severance tax on shale-gas, raising the state minimum wage, and fighting the Republicans on HB 796 and HB 665, bills designed to undermine the existing prevailing wage law in Pennsylvania."

Property Tax Reform

  • Excerpt: "Reducing the tax burden of Monroe County homeowners for real starts with using the existing Homestead provisions of Act 72 to direct relief to homeowners’ primary residences."

Health Care

  • Excerpt: "I would be proud to vocally support legislation to implement a single-payer universal health care system that would cover everyone in Pennsylvania."

Human Rights

  • Excerpt: "The government and businesses open to the public must treat all Pennsylvanians fairly and equally, with no discrimination of any kind permitted. This requires legal protections to make sure no one in Pennsylvania can be treated differently by the government or any business because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, or any other demographic characteristic."

Fracking

  • Excerpt: "Because the citizens of Pennsylvania have a constitutional right to pure water and fracking poses such a threat to our water supply, there should be a moratorium on fracking until there’s enough research to legislate a safe regulatory regime for it. Governor Corbett’s Act 13 fracking law needs to be repealed."
