"I want to make sure everybody has decent healthcare," Quinn said. "I want to make sure everybody has a good education. I want to make sure everybody who works hard gets a decent wage."
Quinn visited rock of Ages Baptist Church in Maywood and told church goers it takes everyone working together to alleviate poverty.
Meanwhile, his opponent, Republican candidate Bruce Rauner, campaigned with Senator Mark Kirk and went on the attack over Quinn's push to make the state's temporary income tax hike permanent.
"He not only has broken his word to the families, the working families of our great state, but he has highlighted the fact that under his administration we have had massive economic failure in Illinois," Rauner said.
Rauner also criticized Quinn for the state's loss of jobs and high unemployment rate during his administration.
