However well-meaning and fine a man, incumbent Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer (R) shocked the fed up taxpayers of IL 100th District by voting "yes" for liberal, embedded, power-hungry House Speaker Mike Madigan's budget proposal. Among other terrible ramifications, it'd immediately and permanently increase Illinois' income tax by 32%, from 3.75% to 4.95% -- on top of already burdensome and excessive local, state and federal taxes and fees.
C.D. failed taxpayers, as did other House Republicans and a Senate Republican. We've had more than enough of being taxed into oblivion and having Illinois become a laughingstock -- all while other big issues such as property tax relief, pension reform and the instituting of term limits -- remain unresolved! His failure to protect taxpayers has inspired me, a South Jacksonville, IL native, to consider running for elected office for the first time; and I'd appreciate your support and feedback as I open this exploratory campaign effort! Thank you.
Thank you for endorsing this campaign!
