Mayville's professional experience includes working as the Director of Mine Safety and Enforcement for the State of Illinois, as Director of State Parks, Executive Director of the World Shooting Complex in Sparta, Director of Mine Safety and Enforcement and as a coal miner in Southern Illinois for twenty-eight years.
In an article with the Daily Egyptian, Mayville highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Mayville said he has very set views on energy. He said the state needs oil and natural gas, but has reservations about fracking. He said nuclear energy is also dangerous and coal is the safest option."
- Excerpt: "Mayville said he supports the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana use. He said law enforcement dollars should be redirected and used to focus on harder drugs that damage society."
Small business/workers’ compensation
- Excerpt: "Mayville is in favor of workers compensation, but said there must be more effort to deter false claims. He said false claims hurt the whole system, but if a worker is actually injured on the job, they should receive workers compensation."
Monetary Award Program grants
- Excerpt: "Mayville said the state needs to allocate more money for MAP Grants, and cutting back on school funding is not smart. He said the government must find a fair and equitable way to finance education. He said the wealthier school districts receive a much larger amount of funding, putting poorer students at a disadvantage."
Affordable Care Act
- Excerpt: "Mayville does not like rollout of the ACA and said it makes him nervous. He said the government could have executed several aspects differently."
- Excerpt: "Mayville said the state should change the way it collects income tax. Mayville said, like other states, Illinois should put a percentage tax on every ton of coal mined."
Illinois budget issues
- Excerpt: "Mayville said the budget is common sense, and needs to be better managed. I think good budgeting is very important in state government, there’s never enough dollars to go around. You really have to budget what you have and make it last, he said."
- Excerpt: "Mayville said the government should not have run the pension bill without negotiating with the union first."
