Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Pensions
Excerpt: "Pension reform must happen if we are to get our finances under control. It is very apparent that the current system is unsustainable."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "I am a firm believer that housing is the key to a healthy economy and is usually the largest driver of jobs. To create a solid housing and job market, we need to begin to create jobs that provide wages allowing people the opportunity to purchase and stay in their homes."
  • Education
Excerpt: "I know the economic success and vitality of our region lies in our people and the best investment we can make is in our people, their education and training. I will work to get necessary money to educate our kids by getting rid of unnecessary pet projects and wasteful spending."
  • SeniorCare
Excerpt: "I am very concerned about the recent attacks on seniors, their healthcare and long-term care. The reduction in prescription benefits has caused many seniors to wonder what will happen to their health and quality of life. The reduction in Medicaid reimbursement for senior living and long-term care providers is making it very difficult for these facilities to make ends meet."
  • State Budget
Excerpt: "I believe a complete audit of every department, a long-needed expense, would reveal areas of waste, fraud and redundancy. The savings captured from such an audit would yield hundreds of millions of dollars. That is real money we can use for the services our people need and deserve."
