Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Pierog's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • JOBS
Excerpt: "It is our duty to create both long and short term solutions that realistically address the underlying issues of unemployment. We need to secure a more stable economic future that will ease the despondency of our communities and bring a return to economic vitality."
  • EDUCATION
Excerpt: "Education provides the answer for a 21st century workforce that will be able to meet the growing demands of an innovative and technologically driven economy. Educational research has been the principal catalyst for economic growth and advancement in healthcare."
  • THE PUBLIC SECTOR AND NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
Excerpt: "Each of these organizations has been impacted by an unprecedented increase in demand for their services due to the unyielding unemployment of Illinois citizens. As the pressure on Kane County and Illinois’s non-profits to provide a wide array of social services increases, their funding resources have decreased."
  • POSITION PAPER ON ILLINOIS'S PENSION
Excerpt: "The growing pension contributions combined with a decrease in the number of employees contributing into the system and a limited General Revenue Fund has led many to call for major pension reforms. Illinois has only set aside only 45% of what it needs to meet its public-worker pension obligations. The fifth most populous state’s unfunded pension liability is growing by $12.6 million a day."
  • POSITION PAPER PROPERTY TAX RELIEF
Excerpt: "People today are struggling to find jobs, to pay bills, to keep their homes. When they are hit with an annual high real estate tax, it can put them under water. Many residents in District 25 are faced with just this dilemma.

They need relief."
