Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Davidsmeyer's campaign website highlights the following issues:[4]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Our brightest spot for a better future is with our children and our grandchildren, which is why we need to reform education spending, decrease unfunded mandates, and allow our teachers to do what is in their hearts to do… Prepare our children for a better future!"

Budget & Pensions

  • Excerpt: "The people running the show each have 35+ years in state government and still have no clue how to fix the problem. We NEED new leaders with new ideas. We MUST reform programs to allow them to run efficiently, saving dollars, while continuing to provide needed services. We HAVE TO increase communication between departments to limit duplication of duties."
  • Excerpt: "Most of all, we need to create a new budget! The majority in Springfield continues to tweak a budget that hasn’t worked for over a decade, expecting it to one day magically fix itself. We need to get rid of the pet projects and get back to the services for which government was created."

Entitlement Reform

  • Excerpt: "In order to do this, we must rid our entitlement systems of the fraud and abuse that has created addiction to large government."

Economy

  • Excerpt: "The State of Illinois has done an extremely poor job managing our jobs climate. On a weekly basis, in the spring of 2013, the majority party in the Illinois House passed bills making it harder to create jobs in our state. To this, I ask… What is the best road to prosperity for all?"

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Let’s face it, we can spend as much money on "job training" as we want, but if there aren’t any jobs to go to once we are trained, we haven’t accomplished anything. A better jobs climate will lead to more opportunities for those who are training for a better future."
