Juarez's campaign website highlights the following issues:
- Balanced Budget and Government Spending
- Excerpt: "The state of Illinois needs to maintain a balanced budget and do so in a civil and practical manner. We need to make sure we follow a responsible and conservative fiscal approach to state spending in order to avoid a painful shortfall of money. There are some budget items that could be considered for privatization, elimination or restructuring, if that means keeping the state on solid financial ground. Transparency in the budget and spending is needed in order to have a meaningful discussion about the state budget."
- Excerpt: "I strongly believe that we need to track and be ever vigilant of convicted child predators and sex offenders. We need to keep these individuals away from places where there are children. We need to continue to promote gang prevention programs that begin to target students in the primary grades. Gang members are not limiting their recruitment to the middle and high schools. More and more they are seeking kindergarteners. With persistence and innovative programs, we can eliminate this problem and offer children what they really need – a safe learning environment."
- Excerpt: "Illinois needs to create an economic environment in which businesses can prosper. We need to encourage an industrial and manufacturing industry while expanding technologies, renewable energy, tourism and trade. Illinois needs to do whatever possible to keep and create new jobs."
- Excerpt: "The state of Illinois must plan and manage our natural resources so that we avoid unnecessary waste and we do not destroy the places that mean the most to us. We need to continue to maintain a clean environment while continuing to promote our tourism, industrial growth and conservation of natural resources."
- Job Creation
- Excerpt: "Illinois must become more competitive. Today, businesses are closing down and jobs are being lost. Illinois needs to embrace innovation and help businesses start creating highly skilled jobs that will entice the brightest and the best, instead of having them leave to another state."
