Illinois’ central location, fertile fields and world-class communities combined with the best, hardest-working people in America mean Illinois should be thriving. We have everything going for us except for decades of bad politics and bad policy. I am working hard to make Illinois more competitive and to help create more good-paying jobs. That means working to lower the cost of doing business by reforming Illinois’ high-cost workers compensation system, reining in out-of-control lawsuit abuse and freezing property taxes. It also means modernizing Illinois’ economic development efforts so they move at the speed of business.

Even though the career politicians and special interests are trying to block these reforms, we’ve worked to bring thousands of new, good paying jobs to Illinois.

We brought nearly 8,000 Amazon jobs to Joliet, Monee and Romeoville. We brought Rivian Automotive to Normal, where 1,500 jobs will be created. We brought Flex-N-Gate and hundreds of quality jobs to Chicago’s South Side. And with the Future Energy Jobs Act we saved thousands of jobs across Illinois and will create thousands of more energy jobs of the future throughout the state.
