A press release from State Rep. candidate Allen Skillicorn:
State of the State: Illinois Is Losing The Race For Good Paying Jobs
Allen Skillicorn, Republican Candidate for the 66th Legislative District, comments on Governor Rauner’s second State of the State address.
“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.
