Issue Position: More Jobs and a Stronger Economy

Issue Position

By:
Location: Unknown

Rosemary Brown understands what matters most to our families and seniors
because she lives the same life as we do. Most importantly, she has the business
background and real world experience to change the way Harrisburg works
and get our state back on track.

Rosemary knows nothing is more important to our families than being able to secure good-paying jobs. That's why she will make economic growth and job creation a top priority in Harrisburg -- and use her experience as a businesswoman to make sure it happens.

Invest in Job Creators: Small Businesses and Manufacturers
Instead of spending tens of millions of dollars on stadiums and pork barrel projects, Rosemary will push to use that money on wise investments in job creation. That means supporting the small businesses and entrepreneurs who drive our economy. It also means using that money to re-invigorate our manufacturing sector -- because a strong manufacturing sector means new jobs for our families and new products to sell and grow our economy.

Make Pennsylvania Competitive
Pennsylvania's business taxes are among the highest in the nation. Government bureaucracies and red tape make it harder -- instead of easier -- for businesses to grow and expand. Quite simply, Pennsylvania drives job creators away.

We must make Pennsylvania's business tax and regulatory structure competitive with other states to stop employers from leaving and encourage new employers to settle here.

Secure Tomorrow's JobsÂ…Today
Rosemary knows that while we can work to help our traditional industries rebound, we must also be looking to the future. That's why she will work to invest in the new technologies, new manufacturing industries and "green jobs" of tomorrow to bring them to our area and provide the jobs our families need.

Safe, Responsible Growth of Natural Gas Industry
The recent surge in activities in the Marcellus Shale natural gas reserve has the potential to positively transform our economy. Rosemary will work to insure safe and responsible growth of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania -- so we can realize its fullest potential in terms of job creation and economic growth.
