Daniel Biss for Governor
Daniel Biss is a middle-class community organizer and state senator running for governor to build a state that works for working families. His campaign is building a grassroots movement powerful enough to push the limits of what’s possible and win the progressive reforms middle-class and working families need.
What that means is that when confronted with how best to provide healthcare for Illinois, Daniel won’t stop at what’s been possible in years past. He believe healthcare is a right, not an option, and that’s why he'll work towards Medicare-for-All. Daniel will bring that same approach to public school funding, overhauling the funding formula to reduce our reliance on property taxes and guarantee every student in every neighborhood a quality education. And, instead of ending our commitment to free, quality public education at the end of high school, he'll fully fund our public colleges and universities to eliminate in-state tuition.
Pushing the limits of what’s possible means acknowledging the financial hardships facing Illinois families and developing bold solutions. It means fighting for universal childcare, paid family and sick leave, and universal long-term care, creating new jobs and job training programs, and working with organized labor to unionize workers in every sector and pass legislation guaranteeing living wages and working conditions. It means rebuilding our criminal justice system to focus on rehabilitation and community investment instead of mass incarceration policies that tear our families apart. These are bold reforms, and necessary reforms—and they are becoming more possible every day as we grow our grassroots movement
