Boken's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Income Tax
- Excerpt: "Currently, all Illinoisans pay the same base rate for personal state income tax. Illinois is one of only a few states who still use a flat tax. I support a graduated income tax for the state."
- Gaming Expansion
- Excerpt: "Illinois should expand the number of casinos we currently have and bring those dollars back into our state. As long as an area is able to support a casino, the free market should dictate whether expansion should be allowed."
- Payday Lending
- Excerpt: "As your State Representative in Springfield, I will fight to crack down on these companies which lead many Illinoisans into debt. We must strongly regulate or even prohibit these types of predatory lenders from destroying the credit of many in desperate situations."
- Renewable Energy
- Excerpt: "I support the exploration of ways to increase renewable energy sources throughout the state of Illinois."
- Reproductive Rights
- Excerpt: "I support a women's rights to make her own decisions concerning her reproductive health."
