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."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
- Legislators are scored on their votes on bills that "impacted the social work profession and their clients."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on conservative issues.
Conroy and her husband, Tim, have four children.
