Campaign themes


Tobin's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

  • Excerpt: "No more tax and spend. Stop spending money we don’t have! We all live with the amount of money in our checkbook – Illinois should do that as well."
  • Excerpt: "Pension Reform – No more smoke and mirrors! We need real reform – a substantial reduction in our unfunded pension liability."
  • Excerpt: "Raise jobs, not taxes – If we bring back businesses to Illinois, those businesses will increase the available jobs in our State. Adding jobs will spread the tax burden and there will be no need to keep increasing our taxes."
