our focus

1
Reboot Finances

We are paying more and getting less. Illinois has the highest property tax rate in the nation. Our income taxes are rising, too. The state’s unpaid bills continue to grow. We have little to show for it. Pension costs are crowding out essential services for the state, especially its neediest citizens. We can do better.

2
Reboot Business and Jobs

Illinois jobs, businesses and residents are leaving the state. Fact: Illinois’ recovery from the Great Recession lagged most other states. Job creators don’t want to settle in a state with high debt and political instability, Good-paying jobs can rebuild Illinois and keep our families together. Good-paying jobs can cure gun violence and provide more revenue to support our government and our future.

3
Reboot Schools

We’re failing our children. Too many schools are not able to provide basic education for the 22nd Century. We discriminate against them based upon where they’re being raised. Some schools spend $6,000 per student, while others have the property wealth to be able to spend $30,000. Money isn’t the only factor, but it’s a big one and that inequality is wrong. We can do better.

4
Reboot Government

Illinois has an infamous history of corruption, waste and graft. Hard-working taxpayers pay the tab for these abuses. Why do we accept it? We deserve an accountable, responsible, transparent and effective government run by the people, for the people. It’s time. It’s time to put the people first in Illinois."
