Republican candidate Heidi Holan (District 46) recently conveyed a high level of discomfort with a Democratic proposal that would burden Illinois citizens and continue to enable poor fiscal management at top levels of state government.
“This week’s progressive income tax bill was the latest in a string of tax hike proposals being touted by Democrat leaders in order to extract more money from Illinois citizens,” Holan said, deploring the continued pattern of current legislators satisfying “their insatiable spending habits.”
Holan, who is running for the Illinois House of Representatives, decried the 15-year run of state lawmakers permitting expenditures to exceed revenue.
“Illinois taxpayers have suffered the fallout," Holan said. “Wash, rinse and repeat is not what Illinois needs at this time when families and businesses are fleeing our communities for better opportunities at a lower cost in neighboring states.”
Holan, who serves as the Illinois State Coordinator for ParentalRights.org, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Elmhurst College in Elmhurst. A resident of the unincorporated Glen Ellyn community for more than three decades, she runs a family-owned business with her husband and home-schools their two sons.
“Structural reforms that will lower state expenses and attract businesses must be implemented immediately to create an environment where all families and businesses can thrive and to end the status quo,” she said.
