Repeal Emergency Financial Law

  • Excerpt:"A financial expert assistance program that would advise & help form recovery plans should be considered rather than replacing municipal governments with Emergency financial managers."

Small Business Tax Cuts

Restoration of Public Funds in Education

Campaign themes

"Government's priority is to provide services for what the public cannot provide individually. Generally speaking, government serves for the general good, for economic growth, public health and a strong, secure defense.

I want to see collective bargaining protected, a restoration of low-income tax credits and a resinding or replacment for commerical personal property tax revenues. I would like to see an increase in minimum wage to create spending power and to increase small business earnings. I want to see recent worker's compensation changes re-visited, reconsidered -- to see windfall corporate tax cuts earned -- tied to job hires and environmental standing and a restoration of full-funding to public education to create investment and jobs, thus a strong economy. I want the right to vote to be a fair, straightforward process; assured for every citizen."[3]
