Campaign themes

On his campaign website Slocum details four main issues of the campaign. Here are excerpts:[2]

  • Jobs in Illinois: "Small businesses are the engine that will expand our economy and add jobs. Springfield must make our state business friendly."
  • Illinois' Budget Catastrophe: "Financial discipline and spending cuts are required to set Illinois back on track."
  • Educating our Children: "Our Constitution requires that Illinois provide high quality public education. It must commit the resources necessary to achieve this in a fiscally responsible way."
  • Illinois' Tax Burden: "With its current tax structure and imminent threats of ever-increasing taxes, the state risks losing valuable jobs and businesses to neighboring states that are willing to implement better policies."
