I want to help you stay in Illinois. Our property taxes are the highest in the nation. As I write this we do not have a balanced budget in place as our constitution requires. We have lost over 100,000 manufacturing jobs to Wisconsin and Indiana in the past several years. The companies left because of high worker's compensation premiums and high taxes.
We must address the serious pension debt affecting our schools and government.
I want to make sure our local environment is safe and clean.
