Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Schiavone's campaign website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "As a mom of a 12-year old son who attends a Chicago Public School, I have seen first-hand what it is like to be a student and a teacher in the public schools right now, and it is tough. Illinois needs to re-invest in our state’s educational system – from early education to higher education."

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "Education helped me get where I am today but it did not come easy. I had to work hard and pay my own way through college and law school. With determination and resolve, I now own and operate my own law firm in Logan Square that provides good-paying jobs right here in our neighborhood. Yet, without access to high quality education I would have been left behind like so many students today. Education is our state’s silver bullet and its investment is the first step when addressing long-term job creation and economy in Illinois."

Restoring the Middle Class

  • Excerpt: "Being raised by a single mother of four, I know how tough times can get and just how far a dollar can go. My mother was a Chicago Public Schools teacher. We did not have money for the extras in life – only what was necessary. Many residents in the 40th district face similar challenges every day. I am committed to supporting their interests in Springfield."
