Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Morrison's campaign website presents the following issues in a question and answer format:[2]

  • The excessive power outages of last summer are still on people’s minds. What can and should be done about ComEd?
Excerpt: "Given its recent track record and what has been learned over the past months about how this public utility operates, I believe that ComEd’s profits must be restricted and it should bear the greatest burden for upgrading its aged delivery system."
  • What will you do to ensure that public employees aren’t abusing the current pension system, and still make sure that teachers get the pensions they’re entitled to?
Excerpt: "This district wants what is fair: reform to close the loopholes for abuse, and a plan for putting the state pension systems back on a sound financial footing."
  • Where do you stand on gun control?
Excerpt: "I am a proponent of strict and well-enforced gun safety laws. I do not support concealed carry legislation."
  • Reproductive rights are very important to women and families. Do you believe in a woman’s right to choose?
Excerpt: "I am 100% pro-choice. I support the right of women to have access to reproductive health options and procedures without the involvement of government and regardless of their ability to pay."
  • What is your position on Israel, and how does this affect Illinois?
Excerpt: "Illinois should proactively pursue business and trade initiatives with Israel."
  • Why does Illinois still have townships? Aren’t they just a waste of taxpayer money?
Excerpt: "If the township were not offering these essential services, they would have to be absorbed by the county or the municipalities within the township, almost certainly with less efficiency and at higher cost to taxpayers."
