We believe in fully funding law enforcement so they can pursue community policing. We want the District Attorney to fully prosecute criminals who break our laws and terrorize our communities. We fight to protect the constitutional rights of citizens across Philadelphia.
School Choice means ensuring equal access to high quality education options for all children regardless of their zip code or unique personal learning needs. We support education funding for healthy and safe schools as well as funding that follows the student to the educational institution of their choice whether that's public, public charter, private, parochial, home school, or other alternative schooling option that is in the best interest of Pennsylvania's students and their future.
Government incentivizes the behaviors it wants to see. Create an environment where family sustaining jobs can flourish and existing small businesses can grow. Public private partnerships can be used to create investment and financing opportunities across the city, especially in high unemployment areas. Grow and train our workforce to meet the demands of a twenty-first century economy. Remove barriers to entry for startups and allow job creators, employees, and consumers to keep more of their hard-earned money in their pockets by reducing over burdensome government mandates, regulations and taxes.
