Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Smith's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Repeal the 67% Quinn-Beiser Tax Increase
Excerpt: "The Beiser-Quinn legislation increased our income tax 67 percent, the largest tax increase in Illinois history. Illinois remains more in debt today than ever. Kathy Smith has pledged to vote to repeal the Beiser-Quinn tax hike."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Illinois needs to create an environment where businesses can create jobs and stop chasing employers out of Illinois. How? Stop high taxes, fees, regulations, and lawsuits that force employers to leave Illinois. I will make Illinois competitive again."
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "Illinois needs a balanced budget. As your state legislator, I will work hard to bring tax relief to hard working people across the state. Our current administration needs to stop wasteful spending. Illinois is unable to continue spending money it does not have."
  • Pro Life
Excerpt: "I believe that life is precious and that families are the core of our society. I support legislation that protects and strengthens families. I oppose spending tax dollars on programs that participate in the destruction of life and families."
  • Public Service
Excerpt: "Career politicians have ruined Illinois. It’s time for a fresh face, new ideas and a common sense voice in Springfield that demands transparency and accountability from our government. Politicians should be servants of the people. As your State Representative, I will fight for the Metro East and will not be bought by special interest groups."
