It's becoming increasingly clear to those of us paying attention to Illinois politics that this state is in serious trouble and we need our people in power to step up and make tough decisions. Our budget is not going to fix itself and jobs aren't going to come back on their own.
That 67 percent income tax increase, courtesy of Gov. Pat Quinn, certainly didn't fix anything. We have to force our leaders to put down the shovel and stop digging us a deeper hole.
How? By picking candidates that don't want to dig. We need candidates who are going to focus on the reality of our crippled state and work to bring us upright.
I've had the opportunity to meet and get to know candidate Jonathan Greenberg who is running for state representative, Dist. 57. He is well aware of the financial predicament Illinois is in and has a plan to fix it.
Jonathan Greenberg is a fiscal conservative and a social moderate who understands the concerns of the community. He lives in the community, is raising a family here and he has tirelessly knocked on door after door listening to people's worries while getting his message out.
Jonathan Greenberg's commitment to our district is real. He has my vote this November.
