Jason Helland – IL Secretary of State


Jesse White, the man whose face appears on just about everything in Illinois, has been talking about retiring for a decade now – but he has been working closely with Madigan in several ways over the years. It’s time for him to retire. 

Jason Helland promises to cut the budget, first thing if elected. He hopes to cut unnecessary spending in Illinois, including reducing government jobs. He wants to get the state of Illinois compliant with the Federal Real ID Act – something Mr. White has failed to do in 13 years.  He also plans to get Illinois up to speed on technology, by having mandatory e-filing for corporations in IL. He would limit himself to two terms. 

In the video below, he discusses taxes with Jeanne Ives:
