The state of Illinois has not had a truly balanced budget since 2001. We have trouble paying our bills, our credit rating is shot, and our pensions are massively underfunded. This has hurt growth and has caused people to leave the Rockford area and Illinois as a whole. Things have not gotten noticeably better, and it’s time for a change.
- Balanced Budget: During my service as a Rockford Township Trustee, I am incredibly proud of two things: I have always voted for a balanced budget, and I have never voted to raise taxes. My ethos when it comes to budgeting is to provide the highest quality services while wisely spending taxpayer dollars. Anything else is unacceptable.
