Proudly and Enthusiastically Supporting Gov. Quinn

Governor Quinn has done what voters say they want in a leader. He has made tough , principled, unpopular decisions to fix the cluster f he inherited from that asshat Blagojevich and 24 years of Republican governors before that.

We paid the pension funds the proper amount once in the last 50 years. You don't undo that kind of FUBAR overnight and without pain.

When Governor Quinn took office our back due bills were 18-24 months old. We are now down to a 30-60 day schedule.

It's about damn time we Democrats quit dumping on our office holders that are making the tough decisions we all say we want them to.

Just look at who the Republicans have driving their clown car here in Illinois. Mitt Rauner wants you to trust him with the keys to the Governor’s mansion, but he doesn’t trust you with his tax returns. What’s he hiding? His budget has a 4 billion dollar shortfall in it that he promised to explain 15 months ago. He still has not. If what he is peddling sounds like a con job, it’s because that is exactly what it is!

If you want a preview of what Illinois would face under Rauner just look at what Governor Sam Brownback did to Kansas. Brownback’s Voo-Doo economics has pushed Kansas so far into the red that they are auctioning off a warehouse of sex toys to pay off their debt. What’s wrong with Kansas! I’ll tell you what’s wrong with Kansas! They elected a Republican Governor! And God help us if we elect one here in Illinois!

2. Quinn has been an active reformer for decades! That's why the crooks are spreading lies about him!

Those who have followed the news know that Pat Quinn has been working for a very long time to promote the general welfare of the entire population of the State of Illinois. He started the Citizens' Utility Board to advocate for citizens against unfair utility rates, and helped to reform the Cook County Board of Tax Appeals.

Quinn ran the State Treasurers' Office efficiently while encouraging the banks to grant low-interest loans, and he worked to get the Illinois Whistle Blowers Protection bill and the Inspector Misconduct bill passed.

As Lt. Gov., he helped to get the Illinois Military Family Relief Act passed. He launched the Sister Rivers Initiative , helped to halt the destruction of Native American sites on Plum Island near Starved Rock State Park, and pushed for the creation of the Green Government Coordinating Council to work toward sustainable solutions.

As Governor, Quinn established the Illinois Reform Commission to enact a strong ethics code, enacted the largest construction program in Illinois history which has repaired much of our infrastructure while supporting 400,000 jobs, launched the Illinois Clean Water initiative, which created thousands more jobs, provided loans to help small businesses grow, and partnered with Ford and Chrysler to help create more than 4,000 more jobs in that sector. Governor Quinn has promoted Illinois business around the world. He helped get a Canadian company to move their North American headquarters to Elgin, Illinois, and a German company to establish their North American headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Pat Quinn is a true public servant, and he works for ALL the people of the State of Illinois!
