The results of the recent Channel 12 poll is what the Trillo team has predicted at this point in the campaign and is right on track with their expectations, given that the other candidates are current office holders and they simply have name recognition.
When Trillo begins to release his proposed policies later this year, his numbers will increase based on his plans to lower taxes, reduce government regulations, and discontinue Rhode Island's image as a sanctuary state.
Trillo does not have a primary and is strategically releasing his unique ideas to change Rhode Island later in his campaign.
Trillo believes that among the other candidates for Governor, he is the only candidate that can truly effectuate the dramatic change that this state needs because of his forty five years as a small businessman and 16 years as a state representative.
Trillo is the real fighter for the average taxpayer. Gina can't solve a problem and Alan is a weak leader.
“While everyone is falling over themselves to come up with the best idea to ensure a safe learning environment for our schools, let's take action now.
Our schools need to be made safer today, not next week, not next month, not next year, but today.
While we wait for the Red Flag Law to pass; while we wait for other legislation to make its way through the General Assembly; while we wait to find out if the Google settlement money can be used; while we wait for all the bureaucrats to figure what they can and will do; we need to immediately place an armed police officer or an armed resource officer in every one of our schools.
Therefore, I call upon our mayors, town administrators, and city councils to approve the placement of these armed officers that are already in the employ of our city and towns, to be placed in our schools immediately.
Even if this is only done until permanent plans can be put in place, our children need to feel secure and should be safe when in school. We cannot and should not wait any longer.”
“Allan Fung came out yesterday from ‘protective custody’ after two weeks of waiting for everyone else in the world to respond to the shooting in Parkland, Florida. Among others, his response comes after statements by his two opponents in the primary, the current governor, and me, the independent candidate he will face if he wins the primary. It also comes after statements by the NRA, the Gun Owners of America, and let’s not forget the local weather men, because if the temperature is not right and the wind is not blowing in the right direction he will not say anything.
Finally, he and his astute campaign committee have decided to make a statement. Whether you like his statement or find fault with it is not the question. It is about not being afraid to take a position on an important issue like the shooting in Parkland.
How can you ever trust anyone in a position of leadership that is afraid to make a statement, let alone take action when it is needed? You can’t. Once again, Allan Fung has shown he is a weak leader who can only read off a script that has been carefully written by his PR ‘specialists’ – another example of what makes him just as bad as Gina Raimondo.”
As a life-long businessman, I understand what it is to create jobs and create a business climate that is pro-jobs and pro-growth. If I had been governor, we would have had a policy already in place for luring Amazon to Rhode Island.
Components of this policy would include: having a state reputation for being business friendly; a tax structure that is appealing to executives, middle management, and shareholders; less burdensome regulations; a successful public school system; and a workforce capable of jumping in to fill the requirements of these 50,000 jobs, all of which we do not have at this time. I certainly wouldn’t have truck tolls.
In short, I would have confronted our state’s failing business climate and created a credible, long-term plan to bring Amazon as well as other employers to Rhode Island. Under current circumstances, the only way the governor can even begin to compete for Amazon is to buy them, which is a recipe for disaster.
