Danville, IL… State Representative Chad Hays (R-Catlin) provided a short reaction to today’s State of the State address by newly elected Governor Rauner. Rauner’s speech illumintated his ambitious goals for his tenure as governor.
“I am impressed with the Governor’s vision for our state,” said Hays. “Now more than ever, Illinois needs what Rauner has to offer: fearless leadership, a work-a-holic mantra, and hope that Illinois can rise up from the bottom of so many state-by-state comparison lists.”
Hays notes that this vision will undoubtedly require some tough votes by the General Assembly and will likely cause disruption to business as usual for some agencies or programs. But for the time being, Hays is pleased with the overall message he heard.
