A press release from State Rep. candidate Allen Skillicorn:
Reformers Endorse Skillicorn For State Rep
East Dundee, IL – Illinois’s structural deficit, taxpayer crushing public pension obligations, and high tax climate cry out for reforms.
Currently only a handful of leaders stand up against the Chicago politicians driving this state into the ditch.
Those leading reformers include State Representative Mark Batinick, State Representative Tom Morrison, State Senator Jim Oberweis, former State Senator Chris Lauzen, and former State Senator Steve Rauschenberger.
These five reformers all endorse a proven conservative reformer, Allen Skillicorn for State Representative.
“I have had the opportunity to work with these outstanding legislators for years.” Skillicorn said,
“To receive the public endorsement of these leaders is humbling.
“For the past 10 years, I’ve just been doing what I felt compelled to do, expose corruption, make taxing bodies accountable, help conservative candidates, and fight for the people who couldn’t fight for themselves.
“All candidates, including myself, seeking the primary nomination are elected officials.
“Remember History repeats itself and I encourage everyone to scrutinize how our past governing lines up with our respective campaign promises.
“Meeting minutes and public records show officials who are afraid to take a stand on issues like government consolidation, refusal to support Governor Rauner’s Turnaround agenda, increased government spending, and outright repeated tax hikes. I didn’t appreciate property taxes going up every year, so I lowered them in East Dundee.
“I wanted my town’s books to be more transparent, so I changed that. I have a track record of positive reforms and I’m committed to continuing that momentum in Springfield.”
