(from Dennis Wagner) just wanted to share with you a local story.
I recently attended one of State Senator Tom Rooney's town halls. Lots of questions on budget, and some heated discussion on gun control. But what sticks with me were some comments and a question from a young lady afterwards. She called herself a millennial who recently bought a small house in Rolling Meadows with her husband and young child. With what seemed like tears in her eyes, she thanked Senator Rooney for his passion on the Illinois economy, and talked about her millennial friends all wanting to leave Illinois. She was here to stay because she still loves her state. Her simple question was, what more can we do to stop the bleeding?
Now, I am not going to take this opportunity to bash Democrats or take a shot at Pritzker, but I do want to say what's on my mind. We are divided over the governor, we are divided over the role of social issues, we are sometimes divided over personalities, and I fear that this is hurting that millennial family just trying to make ends meet in Illinois. The tears in her eyes are not caused by a blue wave or wacko democrats who want to raise taxes, but rather it comes from a feeling of being all alone in this state. A feeling that everyone around her is just giving up. As Republicans, we can argue over principles, but as Illinoisans we must not give up on our state. ... See MoreSee Less
