Candidate's stance on term limits a plus

Bruce Rauner is a very successful business executive who is running for governor of Illinois and I am supporting him in his candidacy for two reasons.

First, he wants to push for the introduction of term limits in the state and see if through until it becomes law. This is a long overdue reform that will create political integrity in a state notorious for a lack of anything resembling integrity.

Second, as a successful businessman, it is hoped that he will be able to successfully address the financial crisis that his state has faced for so long.

These are noble goals and I will support Mr. Rauner in his quest. I sincerely hope that all who ready this will do the same. Keep in mind that this will be a tough process to see that these reforms are put in place in a state that is ranked the 50th worst state in the country on almost all levels. Rauner represents the best hope, indeed perhaps "the last, best hope" for a state in desperate need of leadership and reform.

I encourage all of you to reject the other candidate options and vote for Bruce Rauner.
