Republican Philosophy

    Our principles are guided by the conviction that less taxation and regulation on individuals and businesses, smaller and more efficient government and protection of individual rights and family value lead to prosperity and a higher quality of life.  We believe that the role of government at any level is to implement the will of the people they represent.  We believe we are the guardian of a rich cultural and constitutional heritage.
    The Coventry RTC is committed to the following principles and will support candidates for offices who promote those same principles, values, and ideas.

    Remove those burdensome regulations on individual and businesses that have no added value to the local economy while recognizing that limited regulations are necessary to ensure fair competition and protect quality of life.
    Promote policies that further protect the preservation of our environment and natural resources
    Protect the private property rights of all individuals
    Demand accountability of public schools to ensure that public funds are spent wisely and that educational progress be effectively measured and evaluated.
    Require that the school curriculum include education about national heritage, defense of the constitution, and responsibilities of citizenship.
    Assist in the successful assimilation of local legal immigrants by means of courses in proficiency in the English language and American history and civics.
    Encourage our State legislature to give parents the freedom to send their children to schools of their choice.
    Believe in the value of voluntary giving and community support over taxation and government service.
    Support low taxes because individuals know best how to make their own economic decisions and charitable services.
    Support logical business regulations that encourage people to start or settle or continue to expand their business in our community.
    Encourage local police to assist State and Federal agencies in enforcing laws designed to protect local citizens from acts of terrorism.
    Encourage citizens to demand transparency in their local government.
