The new year is a time for anticipation, reflection and giving thanks. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Illinois' 22nd District and our many volunteers and supporters for their confidence as I return to Springfield.

Because of your support, I've helped pass a number of important initiatives for Illinois and our district, including: $8 million to revitalize Elgin's riverfront; $18 million for a new interchange at I-90 and Barrington Road; and obtaining $22 million for School District U-46.

Along the way we passed the Small Business Tax Credit and the first capital construction bill in nearly a decade, putting people back to work all across our state.

Now, our biggest challenge is balancing the state's budget. I believe the best way to fix our deficit is to put people back to work. People who are working spend more, pay taxes, make mortgage payments and strengthen our communities. Other solutions must include a combination of spending cuts, revenue increases and, at long last, a plan for repaying our loans and to bring an end to state borrowing. This will allow us to pay for schools, social services and public safety.

So as we move forward, please know that I am committed to working with you, my constituents and local businesses, to identify ways we can create jobs both locally and statewide. Because by working together, we can continue bringing prosperity back to all of Illinois and create an even brighter future in 2011 and the years ahead. Best wishes in the new year.

Sen. Michael Noland

Elgin
