Maryland Matters invited the 2022 candidates for governor to answer the following question:
In 300 words or less, please share your vision for your first 100 days in office. Please include individual policy priorities and specific actions you will commit to take if you are elected.
The response from Robin Ficker (R):
On Day 1 I’ll meet with the speaker and senate president to implement a schedule to promptly implement the Maryland voters’ mandate to cut the sales tax by 1/3 or 2 cents = $780/yr/household.
Next, we shall form our Jobs Strikeforce to pursue the Billion $ companies that have recently shunned Maryland to put their multiBillion expansions elsewhere, like Amazon, Apple, Boeing, Facebook, Global Foundries, Google, Hyundai, Intel, Microsoft, Nucor Steel, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, Tesla, Texas Instruments, and Toyota. I’ll ask Mr. Franchot, and Baker to join our financial experts and planners and will replace as many of the Maryland Department of Commerce employees as possible.
Our new Nuclear Strikeforce shall approve a plan to immediately double the clean electrical output of Calvert Cliffs.
Lieutenant Governor Yegge will finalize our Monday am Open houses to give voters a direct day. Dan Cox will assist him.
I meet with all concerned to get our long-stalled highway projects up and moving ahead!
