My campaign platform is based on the following five core issues: fiscal responsibility, economic development, education, senior citizens, and constituent services.

At a time when we are all tightening our belts, we need to reign in state spending. As the fiscal watchdog in the state House, I will support performance auditing and eliminate wasteful spending. If a state agency is under-performing, we have to stop throwing money at the problem – period.

Economic development is also important to the residents of the 10th Representative District. We need to recognize the changing economic landscape in Delaware and make our state more attractive to new emerging industries, such as alternative energy and biotechnology. We need to focus on the redevelopment of brownfields and existing structures to preserve our open space.

With regards to education, taxpayer dollars need to be directed to the classrooms, not to administrative overhead. I will ensure that school districts are fiscally responsible and fight to eliminate the Delaware State Testing Program. We can create a world-class school system by providing our teachers and students with the resources they need.

In addition to providing a quality education for our children, we must also remember that we have an obligation to those who have built our community. Senior citizens, and our families in general, cannot afford 59 percent spikes in electricity rates, the rising cost of healthcare, especially prescription drugs, and the increased cost of living they face today. I will lead the fight to find ways to relieve the tax burden on our senior citizens.

Lastly, one of the primary reasons I am running for state representative is to fill the void the residents of the 10th District are facing regarding constituent services. Our neighbors have a plethora of issues that are important to them, and therefore need an engaged and effective advocate in the state house. I will listen to their concerns and work tirelessly for them and their families.
