Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Howland's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "We have to demand fiscal accountability and transparency. We have to encourage investments in new technology and the green economy to help create new jobs. We need temporary tax credits for business that hire new workers."
  • Education
Excerpt: "With today's global economy we have to remain competitive. Supporting and improving our schools is critical. We are one of the 15 wealthiest states yet we rank 48th out of 50 in per pupil educational spending. We must force Springfield to meet its constitutional obligation to fairly fund our schools. Repeated property tax increases are not the answer."
  • Ethics
Excerpt: "Unfortunately, corruption has been commonplace in Illinois. Pay to play politics must be ended once and for all. We need to make further reforms to campaign financing. We must do everything possible to keep government contracts transparent."
