Committee assignments


In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Mulroe has been appointed to these committees:


Campaign themes


Mulroe's campaign website lists the following issues:[1]

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "Unemployment is a serious problem right now and we have to do more to create jobs."
  • Education
Excerpt: "I will use my background as an accountant to cut waste and inefficiency to ensure that we are protecting education funding. We have to make sure that our children have the resources they need to reach their full potential. If we rely on temporary fixes and half-measures, we are not going to help everyone."
  • Government Reform
Excerpt: "Our residents feel we have the most corrupt government in the nation. As a former prosecutor I am committed to seeing corrupt public officials put behind bars, but I am equally committed to making sure that history does not repeat itself."
  • Leadership
Excerpt: "If we are going to effectively address the problems facing our state, we have to put an end to the culture of corruption in Springfield. Legislation aimed at job creation, economic development, and education reform has to address the peoples' best interest."
  • State Budget
Excerpt: "We have to balance the budget and stabilize our state's finances by cutting waste and streamlining our limited resources. We need to have a system in place that determines the value of every dollar that is spent."
