Campaign themes


Hannon's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • State Finances
Excerpt: "For the last 20 years the State of Illinois has failed to balance its checkbook, continually spending more than it brings in. It is no surprise the State’s economic problem continues on a downward spiral"
  • Pension Reform
Excerpt: "The state controls 5 separate pension plans, currently affecting over 700,000 participants. Unfortunately, teachers, the back bone of our education system, make up over half of these participants"
  • Creating Jobs
Excerpt: "Our economy, both statewide and locally, needs assurance that Illinois is the place to be. Maintaining the status quos will only deepen the job problem in our State"
  • Education
Excerpt: "The State of Illinois is responsible for the education of our children. Throughout the years, they have failed miserably in their duty"
