Some of McSweeney’s comments from BTRO breakfast

Dave McSweeney took a few minutes from his busy campaign schedule to have breakfast with the Barrington Township Republican Organization and friends. During his talk, he emphasized the need for Republicans to not accept the situation in Illinois and cede to the current Democrat dominance in Springfield. With only 6 seats needed in the Illinois House, this cycle is so very important to give Republicans the Speaker’s gavel.

Mr. McSweeney said the most important message of this cycle is jobs and the economy, as he would know. Both being a successful business leader himself and the time he has spent in this cycle with local Chambers of Commerce, the drumbeats are strong. Something has to be done about the 66% tax increase and the inevitable need for pension reform. The current environment is chasing both jobs and residents out of the state.

With the credit downgrading of Illinois and the understated pension obligation not of $80B, but actually over $200B, something has to change and Mr. McSweeney is ready to lead the charge.
