Nate Craig upholds many core, progressive values. Along with the Green Party, Nate Craig embraces environmental sustainability, economic and social justice and will work towards government accountability. Read on to learn more of the issues Nate Craig will work to tackle as Mayor.
Task force for affordable housing
Sixteen organizations in the community took initiative to create an Affordable Housing Task Force. The fact that the biggest organizations in Phoenixville are working to create so much momentum behind this task force encourages me so much as both a citizen and as a candidate running for Mayor! Among other initiatives, this shows me that I am in the right place.
Fix tax increases by eliminate LERTA: no developer subsidies
Nate Craig is truly passionate about ending corporate welfare. There is no reason for developers to receive hundreds of thousands in tax breaks as taxpayers’ tax rates increase. Let’s fight to end developer subsidies. It costs us tax revenue that regular residents end up footing the bill for. In the end, that will push seniors and normal working people out of Phoenixville. Undoing LERTA It is a long, involved process, but as Mayor, Nate Craig will work day in and day out to find ways to end these unnecessary subsidies and create positive change. Nate Craig aims to work towards a better political economy, and will keep working until a better balance is reached.
