Campaign themes


On her campaign website, Marchione highlighted five main issues of her campaign:[2]

  • Lowering Taxes: "the goal of anyone serving in the state legislature must be to lower taxes, not just cap them. Kathy supports ending the unfunded mandates that have given us some of the highest property taxes in the United States and making real reforms to large spending programs like Medicaid."
  • Letting the Economy Grow: "As senator, Kathy will call for a moratorium on all new regulations and a review of those already in place. Kathy also supports limiting the amount of time that state agencies have to give up-or-down approval on projects."
  • Integrity: "Our current state senator has broken a number of campaign promises, flip-flopped on critical issues and continues to mislead voters about his record of raising taxes. As senator, Kathy will be a consistent voice in Albany. You’ll always know where she stands because she has the integrity to tell you."
  • Protecting Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms: "Kathy opposes any measure that will compromise our God-given right to keep and bear arms, including microstamping."
  • Paying Attention to Smaller Communities: "Every community deserves a senator who will respond to their needs. If elected, Kathy pledges to visit every single city and town in the district at least once during her first term."
