Smith's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Repeal the 67% Quinn-Beiser Tax Increase
- Excerpt: "The Beiser-Quinn legislation increased our income tax 67 percent, the largest tax increase in Illinois history. Illinois remains more in debt today than ever. Kathy Smith has pledged to vote to repeal the Beiser-Quinn tax hike."
- Excerpt: "Illinois needs to create an environment where businesses can create jobs and stop chasing employers out of Illinois. How? Stop high taxes, fees, regulations, and lawsuits that force employers to leave Illinois. I will make Illinois competitive again."
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "Illinois needs a balanced budget. As your state legislator, I will work hard to bring tax relief to hard working people across the state. Our current administration needs to stop wasteful spending. Illinois is unable to continue spending money it does not have."
- Pro Life
- Excerpt: "I believe that life is precious and that families are the core of our society. I support legislation that protects and strengthens families. I oppose spending tax dollars on programs that participate in the destruction of life and families."
- Public Service
- Excerpt: "Career politicians have ruined Illinois. It’s time for a fresh face, new ideas and a common sense voice in Springfield that demands transparency and accountability from our government. Politicians should be servants of the people. As your State Representative, I will fight for the Metro East and will not be bought by special interest groups."
