State Representative David Reis and Darren Bailey
respond to Press Questionaire

 1. What are your goals if elected?

Reis:

 As State Representative,

I have worked hard to

protect our families and

our Southern Illinois values.

As a fifth-generation

family farmer, I support

real reforms to grow our

economy and create goodpaying

jobs.

I will continue to stand

up to Mike Madigan and

the Chicago Democrat

Machine. I opposed their

wasteful spending and repeatedly

voted against the

Democrats’ unbalanced

budgets and Chicago

bailouts. I will continue to

push for reforms to help

get Illinois back on the

right track.

With the highest property

taxes in the nation, I

am fighting for property

tax relief for our families

and seniors. I support a

property tax freeze to provide

real tax relief. As

State Representative, I

have repeatedly voted to

freeze property taxes.....

 

Bailey:

 I think we have to

make Illinois a more attractive

place for businesses

to locate. Our

state continues to lose

population and in fact we

have lead the country in

out migration for the last

four years.

We must lower taxes.

Illinois has the second

highest property taxes in

the nation and is inching

closer and closer to becoming

the state with the

highest property taxes in

the country. If we want

to stop the out migration,

we simply must lower

taxes.

We must also address

the pension crisis that is

bankrupting our state.

Lawmakers have time to

debate gun control bills

and state funding for

abortions but somehow

there simply is not

enough time to deal with

the pension crisis. We

have to make the pension

crisis a priority.... to read the full story, pick up a copy of March 13, 2018 edition of the ODM
