“Today, we didn’t just hear soundbites and political pandering.

“We heard from a governor who is taking on Illinois’ challenges, even though it’s politically difficult. Governor Bruce Rauner is right, the Illinois political class consisting of Speaker Madigan and his special interest allies are crushing both employers and families. The agenda the governor laid out today is a broad agenda, but a necessary agenda. He’s ready to move the state forward, to be competitive, and build higher paying jobs.

“Illinois desperately needs pension reform, education reform, criminal justice reform, and improvements to the way Illinois delivers services. Without modest reforms unions will have no jobs to unionize and trial lawyers will have no businesses to sue.

“It is clear that the debate in Springfield has changed. Today, Governor Rauner outlined the next steps. We must make even bigger changes in 2016, if Illinois is to be a place where families choose to live and work, and can afford to live and work.

“For Illinois to be competitive with surrounding states, we must pass workers compensation reform, property tax relief, and education reforms.” Skillicorn continued, “Our brighter future starts now!”

The 66th Legislative District represents areas in McHenry and Kane Counties, including Algonquin, Carpentersville, Crystal Lake, East Dundee, Elgin, Huntley, Lake in the Hills, Lakewood, Sleepy Hollow, and West Dundee.

  1. Ok now that everyone has identified “Mad MIKEY as the main problem, everyone should be making plans to find a way to remove him from office.

    The “REIGN OF TERROT” committed on the people of Illinois needs to end. Enough, is enough.

  2. Rauner’s own plan called for more spending than revenue available, he isn’t a hero yet!

    When politicians speak in generalities, and play follow the leader, I get concerned if they aren’t just as self serving as who they are replacing.

  3. We, the taxpayers, of Illinois need to elect people willing to ‘serve’, we do not need career politicians.

    There are four candidates in the D-66 Republican primary.

    Two are already career politicians and one is a lawyer working for a career politician.

    Three are backed by career politicians.

    Then there is Paul Serwatka.

    I support Paul.

  4. I guess the states are losing jobs when so many billionaires like Rauner, Trump and Bloomberg feel the need to run.

    Ask yourself why?

    If not to get more money for the 1%.

  5. This is all true and well paying jobs are leaving at an accelerated pace.

    We cannot survive like this.

    If we could sell our property for what we paid for it in 2001 we would be gone as well.

  6. Where’s the Olan Mills that Skillicorn keeps getting these portraits from?

    They’re a really nice, albeit vain, touch.
