KAY’S PLAN FOR ILLINOIS:
In addition to lowering taxes, fighting corruption and passing a balanced budget, here is Dwight’s message to all voters in the 112:
-Oppose progressive income tax hike
In the Summer of 2017 politicians in Springfield approved a 32% income tax increase. Now Madigan and Rep. Katie Stuart want to pass a progressive tax – which would hurt middle class families even more!
–More Metro East jobs
Thousands of Illinoisans work across the border – that is, Missouri, because there are more job opportunities there. If Illinois can improve the business climate, we can create more jobs here.
–Property tax relief
We have the highest property taxes because of rules Illinois politicians push on our schools and local governments. Kay supports reducing and eliminating burdensome unfunded mandates to lower property taxes.
–Oppose Madigan’s Chicago agenda
One Chicago politician has been in charge of the Illinois State House for over 40 years. His name is Mike Madigan. You can thank Madigan for higher taxes, record deficit spending and Illinois’ debt. Dwight Kay will not support Madigan – however, Katie Stuart voted to re-elect Madigan Speaker of the House.
Dwight Kay cut his own legislator pay and refused to accept the lavish pension offered to legislators.
It is also very worth noting that Speaker Madigan has heavily funded Katie Stuart’s campaign, contributing more than $1 million to beat Dwight Kay! You may want to think about that for a bit. Source
