We need to focus on issues that
Unite Us Not Divide Us
As a mother of three children, who is very involved in my local school system, parents should be making decisions for their children and not the government. I support a Parents' Bill of Rights which includes transparency in curriculum, school choice, and other education policy proposals.
SAFETY AND SECURITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES
A top priority for all Illinois residents is keeping their family safe. We need to support our law enforcement and first responders who work tirelessly to protect our communities every day. Our "New Start for Illinois" policy plan includes adding Law Enforcement (including corrections officers) and first responders as a protected class under Illinois Hate Crimes Law.
RESTORING TRUST IN GOVERNMENT
The most healthy relationships are based on trust. In order to establish trust in government, you must elected honest leaders with integrity. I have transparent voting records of representing our communities. I have challenged the ethics process at the state level. I know first hand why State reforms need to be made to include impartial oversight that includes consequences for unethical or illegal actions by government candidates/officials.
Optimizing government efficiencies can provide a foundation for trust. I have extensive experience on government efficiencies, share services, and government consolidation. Maximizing required services at a minimum cost to taxpayers requires coordination and collaboration. Building relationships and focusing on areas that united rather than divide, is the only way to provide sustainable solutions.
