Conroy's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Creating Jobs and Encouraging Economic Development
- Excerpt: "As State Representative, I will work to promote DuPage County as a great place to do business. I support tax cuts to small businesses that help them expand and targeted tax incentives that reward in-state job creation."
- Demanding Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "It’s long overdue for government to learn to live within its means. To help us get there, I will work to reform the way Illinois’ budget is crafted to increase transparency and respect tax payers’ hard-earned dollars. I will help cut waste and inefficiencies, forcing government to protect vital services and spend only when there are clear benchmarks and accountability."
- Defending our Children
- Excerpt: "Unfortunately, dangerous sexual predators are a real threat to children. I support extended sentencing, which would allow a judge to keep sex offenders locked up beyond their release dates if they pose a danger to the public."
- Preventing Unfair Property Tax Increases
- Excerpt: "Working families simply cannot afford to pay more, and I will push for legislation to freeze property taxes when home values decline."
- Cutting Lawmaker Pay
- Excerpt: "At a time when so many families are struggling financially, lawmakers have an obligation to lead by example. I will not only make state legislators take a pay cut, I’ll make it harder for them to raise their pay in the future."
