Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Sente's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Fresh ideas for changing Springfield’s old business as usual
Excerpt: "As a new State Representative, I have not been in Springfield long, but I am already working to change 'business as usual.'"
  • Fighting Corruption
Excerpt: "I want to transform the politics of the past by passing a new law imposing mandatory jail time for serious government ethics violations and stripping public pensions from officials who commit crimes in office."
  • Restoring Fiscal Accountability
Excerpt: "As a former small business owner, I believe the state needs to account for every dime it spends and am fighting to require the state to budget for outcomes and eliminate wasteful spending."
  • Planning for the Future
Excerpt: "I am also using my experience as the former owner of an architectural firm specializing in environmentally friendly design to push for the development of green technologies, including renewable energy and advanced manufacturing, that will create jobs and lessen our dependence on foreign oil."
  • Creating Jobs
Excerpt: "As a business woman, I feel it is unacceptable for corporations to take tax breaks and move jobs out of Illinois to foreign countries. I will fight for a law that requires businesses that move jobs out of state to refund the tax breaks they received and I support rewarding businesses that create and retain good-paying jobs."
