(Park Ridge, IL)-The Technology & Manufacturing Association of Illinois (TMA) hosted Bruce Rauner, Republican nominee for Governor of Illinois, at their Breakfast For Business series yesterday. More than 130 TMA members and guests listened as Mr. Rauner described his vision for Illinois. "I will fight with everything I've got to restore our way of life in Illinois. Democracy doesn't work in a one party system. I am going to do my best to change that," he stated.

Mr. Rauner outlined a four-point plan to revive Illinois. 1) Restore the business climate so that Illinois is pro-growth and pro-business, 2) Make Illinois government more efficient and transparent, 3) Ensure world class education at all levels including vocational and technical training, and 4) Enact term limits of 8 years on all Illinois state officeholders.

"It was great to have Bruce Rauner visit us at TMA, stated immediate past Chairman Zach Mottl. "As a business leader, Bruce understands the challenges most of our members confront on a daily basis to manage their operations and turn a profit. He knows we need structural reforms to things like workers compensation, taxation and over-regulation. I am confident he can get the job done."
