Campaign themes


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

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "With a decade of experience at the federal, state, and local levels making a difference for Spokane families and businesses and later as Senior Policy Advisor to Senator Lisa Brown, Marcus Riccelli is uniquely qualified to move our economy forward."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "I believe it is paramount to protect and preserve our environment. For us in Spokane, this means many things, but recovering the Spokane River is one of the most important. In Olympia, I will fight for legislation that will protect our river and help us preserve our environment for future generations."
  • Crime
Excerpt: "While Spokane is generally a safe community, we do have issues with crime that we must control to protect our citizens. From cracking down on meth labs, to working collaboratively to address the issue of gangs, I believe we need to find unique and effective ways to address crime in our community. "
  • Women’s Rights
Excerpt: "I have been surrounded by strong and intelligent women in my personal and professional lives. I believe in a woman’s right to choose. The idea that a woman may be paid less than a man for doing the same job is ludicrous to me. I will fight with all I have to protect the rights of all women. "
  • Marriage Equality
Excerpt: "I believe fully in marriage equality and will ardently support Referendum 74."
