Letters to the Editor

Who to chose?

To the Editor:

We are in the middle of a heated election for Illinois governor – the two primary contenders are Gov. Pat Quinn (Democrat) and Bruce Rauner (Republican).

Let us look at this as if you were an investor. With whom would you place your money?

Rauner and his companies made billions for themselves and their investors. Rauner does not force anyone to give him money to invest or cover his mistakes, etc.

Quinn and his departments (companies) lost billions in taxpayer dollars. They take your money directly out of your check. Now, they want you again to pay for their mistakes and broken promises. All of this, and the state still has the worst credit rating of all the states.

Review the latest Illinois budget. It does not even comply with the state’s Constitutional requirement to be balanced; look at the details. What they did was a one-time sweeping of accounts to force a balanced budget, and they are counting on extending the temporary income tax after the election.

Remember, look at this like an investor.
