The Issues

ELIMINATING PROPERTY TAXES

Property taxes are forcing senior citizens out of their homes and squeezing the checkbooks of middle-class taxpayers.  James May supports eliminating school property taxes so that taxpayers can afford to live in their homes.

PROTECTING TAXPAYERS

Harrisburg’s reach into our lives through high taxes, out-of-control spending, over-regulation and more debt is hurting our families and small businesses.  James May will oppose unnecessary tax increases, like the “rain tax,” and work to eliminate wasteful spending.

PROMOTING JOB CREATION

Our ability to pursue the American Dream in Pennsylvania is vanishing.  High taxes unfunded mandates and job-crushing regulations have stymied the creation of family-sustaining jobs.  James May will support pro-growth policies that help to create a job friendly environment that will help businesses create jobs. 

INCREASING ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE

During the last decade, healthcare costs have soared while access to quality healthcare seems to have declined.  James May will seek to make healthcare more affordable at the state level by seeking to make healthcare more transparent, reduce prescription drug costs and increasing access to healthcare.

ENSURING ACCESS TO A WORLD-CLASS EDUCATION

Every parent wants the best education for their children.  The key to a bright future is a quality education. James May supports investing in public education as well as giving parents increased choices in the education that best fits their children.  James believes that we need to both support public schools that are meeting the needs of our children but also support choice so that Pennsylvania students are not trapped in failing and unsafe schools.

STANDING UP FOR VETERANS

James May has not only served his country but as our State Representative, he is extremely active to make sure that every Pennsylvania veteran receives the benefits that they have earned.  He will support programs to help our veterans including job retraining and mental health programs.

DEFENDING THE 2nd AMENDMENT

James May will protect our 2nd Amendment rights from the liberal activists in Washington D.C. and Harrisburg who want to restrict our 2nd Amendment rights and our ability to protect our families and ourselves.

PROTECTING THE UNBORN

James May is proudly pro-life.  He supports the sanctity of life and believes that we need to educate people, so they understand that there are alternatives to abortion, like adoption.
