Our City CommitteeThe Brockton Republican City Committee is actually made up of 7 separate Ward committees, each representing its respective ward in the City. Each Ward Committee is organized and operates as a typical town committee would.
These are the values of Brockton and the values of the Republican Party. Defending and promoting these values will generate new members, new resources and a new day for Brockton.
As Republicans, we believe that economic growth benefits all people. We understand that economic growth will create new jobs and a healthy, more self-sufficient community. By lightening the load on businesses from burdensome regulation and taxes.
As Republicans, we will continue to press for sensible reforms that hold government accountable and improves the quality of life for all citizens. We supporta limited role for government in our society, and we believe that our government at all levels in Massachusetts has strayed from this mandate.
Fiscal Policy and Taxation
We understand that in order for a government to run, it must collect money through taxes. We believe that our citizens have the right to demand that the funds be used properly and efficiently. Government should not take more than it needs. Republicans are working hard against a tax and spend legislature that knows no bounds. Government spending should only grow at a rate that is appropriate to keep it going as a small, efficient and effective body.
The Republican Party stongly stands for the protection of fellow citizens from crime and violence. We have consistently demonstrated our commitment to make certain that the rights of the people always stand above the rights of criminals while supporting the safety of those who are working to keep us safe.
Every citizen should have access to affordable healthcare without excessive government intrusioin or control. Massachusetts Republicans support applying market-based solutions to achieve greater healthcare access, lower patient costs, and improve quality of care.
We support efforts to make our city's schools better by implementing education reform, insisting on accountability and higher standards from teachers and administrators and encouraging more parental involvement.
Anti-Poverty and Social Services
We believe that the best and most proven method of curtailing poverty is through a good education system, equal opportunity, personal achievement and economic growth. Republicans are dedicated to seeing that our fellow citizens lift themselves up and out of unfortunate circumstances to lead productive and independent lives.
Civil Rights and Individual Liberty
As Republicans, we enjoythe liberties guaranteed to us by the State and Federal Constitutions. Massachusetts Republicans believe that by promoting individual rights, we create a successful society. Individual freedoms are the building blocks of our community.
Family, Community and the Environment
We know that there is nothing more important to the fabric of a society than family and community. We know we must do everything in our power to protect these institutions - strengthening families, supporting our city government and promoting responsible environmental stewardship.
