Campaign themes

Wallace's campaign website lists three main issues:[2]

  • Jobs and the Economy Excerpt: "By reinstating rail service to areas like Quakertown, Bethlehem, and Easton, commuters will have the opportunity to go to and from these urban hubs easily and inexpensively," and "potential revenue streams include closing corporate loop holes which allow corporations to pay reduced corporate taxes for doing things which they are legally obligated to do anyway, such as pay their taxes on time."
  • Shrinking the Size of Government Excerpt: "The state legislature can be made smaller and more efficient by consolidating legislative districts," and "we must work to eliminate hidden legislative expenses, such as per diems, stipends, and extra staff expenditures."
  • Protecting Our Environment Excerpt: "Part of the income from taxing Marcellus shale should go toward protecting the Delaware River and its estuaries from harmful pollution that is encroaching on it due to Marcellus shale drilling activities," and "we must do our part to in-source, rather than out-source, food production by keeping farmland a part of our local infrastructure."
