Chuy Garcia on Government Reform

 

 


Implement financial and performance audits

As mayor, I will tackle the total cost of Chicago government with four core principles: better and more efficient service; transparency and public accountability; comprehensive revenue reforms that are equitable and sized to meet the needs of a well-functioning government; and collaboration with our government partners, public employees, service providers, the City Council and our collective constituents. We must immediately implement financial and performance audits of city departments.

Garcia supports the PVS survey question on regulating campaign donations

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
