Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Job Creation
Excerpt: "Job creation must be placed as the top priority of Illinois. People are desperately attempting to gain employment, but our government's failure has stopped them from reaching their goal. "
  • Income Tax Relief
Excerpt: "Illinois has one of the most regressive tax systems in the nation. This has been seen from the unfair tax increase that has been implemented on middle-class Illinois residents. "
  • Welfare Reform
Excerpt: "Illinois is currently in a financial crisis. Our state must learn to be more fiscally responsible, while at the same time, helping place people back in the job market."
  • Creating Accountability
Excerpt: "The past decades of public service in Illinois have simply been embarrassing. The way our public servants act is Springfield is not up to par. "
  • Second Amendment Rights
Excerpt: "I fully support a concealed carry law for Illinois."
  • Cutting Government Waste
Excerpt: "The financial decisions of Illinois have been poor and resulted in a deficit of over 13 billion dollars. Illinois must continue to work to cut unnecessary spending and learn to live within its means."
  • Property Tax Relief
