Our state is falling apart, but our state government is paralyzed by partisan bickering instead of solving problems. Things are working just fine for the wealthy and powerful special interests, but the rest of us are left behind.
It’s time for a comeback. We have a real plan to put people above special interests, to create long-term solutions for our budget crisis, and to make Illinois a better place to earn a living and raise a family.
