Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt:"Ronald Rabin understands the number one issue facing our state is getting our economy back on track. Ronald knows what it takes to create jobs and grow a business. The solution is simple. When government gets out of the way, businesses can grow, hire and prosper."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt:"Our state’s high school drop out rate is over 30%. This is unacceptable. Ronald Rabin believes the best way to support education is to fund the classroom directly and not wasteful bureaucracies. When money is sent to the classroom and sidesteps administrations, it does more good for the child."


  • Excerpt:"Ronald supports legislation that will update the funding formula in order to ensure counties receive their fair share of road funding and that the roads and bridges we drive on are safe."


  • Excerpt:"onald understands one of the highest expenses for small business owners and families is their healthcare coverage. He supports allowing employees to use their pretax income to purchase private healthcare. Also, Ronald supports “flexible benefits” which will allow families to choose plans that best suits their needs."
