Campaign themes


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

  • Repeal the 67% Quinn-Hoffman Tax Increase
Excerpt: "The Hoffman-Quinn legislation increased our income tax by 67 percent. The result – a $7 billion tax increase on Illinois families and employers. Melinda Hult has pledged to vote to repeal the Hoffman-Quinn tax hike."
  • Jumpstart our Economy with Jobs
Excerpt: "We need to create a positive environment for businesses and employers, and stop chasing them out of the State with unnecessary taxes, lawsuits and regulations. We need to give employers more of an incentive to do business in Illinois. Politicians don’t create jobs, business owners do!"
  • Curb Wasteful Spending
Excerpt: " We cannot afford to keep traveling down a path of tax increases to fix another hole in the budget; cuts in government must be made. We are unable to continue spending money that we do not have."
  • Pro Life
Excerpt: "I believe that life begins at conception, and that life is precious. Families are the core of our society. I will support legislation that protects these beliefs and strengthens families."
  • Gun Rights
Excerpt: " I am a proud member of the NRA. The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution is clear about our Right to Bear Arms. Recent Supreme Court rulings have held that laws that infringe on our 2nd Amendment right are unconstitutional."
