Issues

Campaign themes

Cutler's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

State Budget

  • Excerpt: "I would also work to stop the practice of giving state legislators taxpayer funds in the form of “per-diems” for commuting to work. As your next state representative I’ll drive to work on my own dime."

School Funding

  • Excerpt: "We also need to stop unfunded mandates that tie the hands of our teachers and school administrators. While we need state standards, I'm a firm believer that decisions about our schools are best made at the local level."

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They are also the ones that support our community, sponsor our little league teams and donate to local charities. We must do more to support them."

Energy Policy

  • Excerpt: "I'm a firm believer that Massachusetts should push to make green jobs and green technology as vital a cog in our state's economy as health care, higher education or biotech."

Human Services

  • Excerpt: "Protecting our neediest citizens is a part of living in a commonwealth and my belief is that we need a government that is both cost-effective and compassionate."
