Campaign themes

Martwick's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Illinois must re-invest and expand its manufacturing sector. We cannot survive with only service based jobs."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "We must re-write our tax code to ensure that we raise the revenue we need for our budget, but it must be raised in a way that is fair and equitable for all Illinois residents... we simply cannot continue to raise taxes to solve our problems."
  • Public Employee Pensions
Excerpt: "Government should always set the good example and provide adequate retirement benefits for the front-line and public safety workers who protect and serve our neighborhoods."
  • Budget
Excerpt: "Our budget is broken. Years of financial mismanagement coupled with the downturn in the economy have left us on the brink of financial ruin."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Our system of education is woefully underfunded by our state government. This results in high property taxes and schools that don't have the resources to properly educate our children."
  • Reproductive Health Care
Excerpt: "Every woman is entitled to make health decisions with the advice of her doctor and without the intrusion of politicians. I am pro-choice and will always oppose legislation that infringes upon a woman's right to choose."
