Joe Soloski is running for Governor of Pennsylvania in 2022. As the Libertarian candidate, Joe believes in the principles of limited government and minimum state spending as the best way to maximize the freedom and personal liberties of each resident of Pennsylvania.
Below, you can find where Joe stands on the key issues facing our Commonwealth.
Term Limits for State Legislators
Term limits will breed a class of legislators that are more interested in serving the Citizens of Pennsylvania as opposed to perpetuating a career in elected office. Special interest groups will have less influence on an elected official that has a limited term of service. Legislators with imposed shorter terms will have a greater interest in reducing and/or eliminating personal benefit from serving since their terms in office are limited.
Therefore, I am proposing these limits for our elected state representatives:
For State Legislators: 8 years; 4 terms (in any order)
For State Senators: 8 years; 2 terms (in any order)
Reduce the Emergency Powers of the Governor
Convert the Legislature to a Part-Time Assembly
Reduce State Spending
Sell Pennsylvania's State-Owned Liquor System
Legalize Cannabis and Other Certain Drugs
Defend the Second Amendment
Protect Small Businesses by Ending Coronavirus-related Restrictions
Eliminate the State Inheritance Tax
Reduce the Corporate Income Tax Rate
Reform Pennsylvania's Education System
Promote Free Market Healthcare Solutions
Reduce Property Taxes
Pass a Constitutional Amendment to Achieve Pension Reform
