Issues Facing Illinois and the 50th District : Keith R. Wheeler - Republican Candidate for Illinois' 50th District
Issues Facing Illinois and the 50th District
There are many critical issues facing our state today. None is more important than job creation.
Job creation will require making the cost of doing business in Illinois more affordable. Illinois desperately needs aggressive plans and ideas to improve job creation.
Economy: It is truly disappointing that Illinois is ranked 48th among all of the states in job creation. This has a directly negative effect on our families and neighbors.
Business Environment: The leadership in Springfield looks at the Illinois business community as if it is some kind of golden goose with infinite golden eggs. Instead, businesses are leaving Illinois in droves. We need new leadership to turn that around.
Budget/State Pension Costs: There is no way that Illinois can continue to spend more than it takes in while allowing massive unfunded pension liabilities to remain growing unchecked.
We must improve the job climate in Illinois- now. Evidenced by the continual increase in demand at the Kendall County Food Pantry, our neighbors need better opportunities to support their families. It's time for a more aggressive approach.
Other critical areas of concern lie in the following areas which will be addressed in more detail as the campaign moves forward:
1. Accountability & Integrity 2. Cooperation with Municipalities and School Districts 3. Fiscal Responsibility
Keith is a pro-constitution, fiscal conservative who will offer innovative programs and legislation to improve the county's financial health and the quality of life for residents in the 50th District and all of Illinois.
