Sandack's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "I voted against and vehemently opposed the midnight tax increase of last year which hiked taxes 67% for residents and 47% for businesses. That increase came despite calls from me and colleagues to look for spending cuts before even uttering the term “tax increase.”"
- Pension Reform
- Excerpt: "The time for action is now. The five State pension funds supported by taxpayers are woefully underfunded and continue to crowd out room in the State budget for required State services like education, human services, transportation and emergency response."
- Excerpt: "To continue to provide our children with the quality of education they deserve, we need local control of our schools. Legislators should not be dictating how our local schools are run."
- Level Playing Field
- Excerpt: "This process of "corporate hostage negotiations" is never ending. Who is next? Abbott Labs? McDonald's? Phizer? State Farm? John Deere, Motorola?...etc. We need to lower taxes for ALL and grow the tax base and create new tax-payers."
- Transparent Government
- Excerpt: "This is your state. It belongs to you, its residents. Increasing public participation in, and awareness of, the issues and challenges we face will always be a continuing objective of mine."
