Key Issues

Jonathan is passionate about making change for a number of key issues:

Creating Jobs

Jonathan is demanding real reforms to strengthen the economy and lift up the middle class. He wants to cut burdensome fees on small businesses and provide tax credits for employers that create new jobs, while also banning taxpayer-funded deals for businesses that ship our jobs overseas and closing loopholes that let big corporations rig the system. He also wants to expand tax credits that help working families keep more of what they earn.

Education

As the father of two, Jonathan wants to fully fund our schools in order to provide our children the best possible education. While some politicians choose political games over our students, he wants to provide fair funding for every school district—without picking winners and losers—and bring additional resources to local classrooms.

Gun Safety

Jonathan wants to ban deadly, military-style assault rifles and better regulate gun shops to crack down on illegal gun sales. He is also standing up to the extreme NRA agenda and demanding common-sense reforms that prohibit individuals on the FBI’s terrorist watch list from obtaining guns.

Health

Jonathan strongly opposes the extreme Washington politicians who would strip healthcare from millions of Illinois residents with congenital heart conditions, diabetes, cancer survivors, and other diseases. He is sponsoring a resolution opposing Donald Trump’s attempt to slam through dangerous changes to federal health law, and he applauded the recent passage of state-level protections that prohibit insurance companies from denying care to people with pre-existing conditions, regardless of what politicians in Washington do.

Property Taxes

Jonathan is fighting for property tax relief. He is working on eliminating wasteful local spending and providing additional tax relief to seniors and veterans.

Seniors

Jonathan opposes reckless cuts to senior care. He is standing with AARP to stop a proposal that would strip life-saving care from elderly residents, eliminate criminal background checks on caregivers and deny home-delivered meals to thousands of seniors.

Veterans

Jonathan is committed to ending veteran suicide. He wants veterans returning from combat to receive needed care and expand job opportunities so veterans can access health care, job training and other services as soon as they get home.

A Woman’s Right to Choose

Jonathan knows personal medical decisions should not be made by extreme politicians like Donald Trump. He applauded the repeal of a dangerous provision in state law that would make the right to choose illegal if Trump and his allies get their way.
