Issues

Campaign themes

Boscola's campaign website highlights three main issues:[1]

  • Job Creation and Economic Development Excerpt: "We must use creative and innovative approaches to not only create new jobs and bring new industry into our state, but to protect the jobs we have and help our existing businesses who have been here with us for years."
  • Educating Our Children Excerpt: "More money does not necessarily equal better schools. Targeted investment in education is needed."
  • Transportation Funding Excerpt: "It has been estimated that an additional $3.5 billion is needed to address our deteriorating roads and bridges. I believe we need to move quickly and responsibly to redirect our limited resources. In order to address this funding shortfall, we need to think outside the box and not fall back on increasing taxes each and every time we run into funding difficulties."
