RICK GREEN ON THE ISSUES
Service Over Self
Rick will never take a job as a lobbyist – ever. He will not accept a book deal, film a reality TV show, or take a congressional pension. No man can serve two masters. Members of Congress cannot serve you and the communities you love if they are busy trying to pad their own wallets.
When in Congress, Rick will propose legislation to freeze congressional pay until we have a balanced federal budget. You have to balance your checkbook at home and at your business. The government should do the same.
Rick Green is founder and CEO of 1A Auto, one of the country’s largest online auto parts companies employing more than 450 people with locations in Pepperell, Littleton, and Westford. The company succeeded due to one crucial innovation: Empowering customers to perform their own repairs with a series of practical how-to videos. Rick understands that pro-growth policies and free markets are key to America’s economic future. Now he is going to Congress to empower his constituents.
fix it now
In Congress, Rick will request to serve on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. Investing in infrastructure projects like the Route 2 Concord Rotary and the Rourke Bridge in Lowell will create jobs, eliminate traffic gridlock, spur economic development, and save lives.
tackling the opiod epidemic
It seems no one has been left untouched by a scourge of opioids in our neighborhoods that has claimed thousands of lives. We need to focus on treatment, prevention and education. As congressman, Rick will introduce accountability and leadership by appointing a senior level staffer to coordinate state, local and federal efforts with community-based organizations.
A family man
Rick lives in Pepperell with his wife Maggie and their children, Finlay (8), Tessa (6) and Gifford (4), and is active in the community as a Cub Scout Den Leader and a baseball coach.
Rule of law
Rick welcomes legal immigration as a positive force that has brought enterprising people to America from around the world, but he says no to illegal immigration because it undermines the rule of law. Sanctuary cities make the problem worse by increasing pressure on federal law enforcement and border control. Instead, we should fix the system to recruit and retain skilled workers and reward legal immigrants who play by the rules in their pursuit of the American Dream.
