Governor Pat Quinn has asked for an opportunity to meet with me to talk about Illinois’ current economic and budget crisis. Following is my reply sent July 8.


July 8, 2009

Governor Quinn:

Thank you for the invitation to meet.  I welcome the opportunity to discuss the budget crisis and solutions with you.

Let me offer you the following:

1. Illinois cannot increase taxes on families and businesses.

2. We have lost over 700,000 jobs and citizens over the last ten years due to the fact and perception that Illinois is a high cost of living and high cost of doing business state.   An increase in taxes will only further drive more businesses and jobs out of our state.
