 SPRINGFIELD, Illinois – The following statement should be attributed to Kristina Zahorik, President of the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association…

“Illinois has been desperately awaiting two critical changes from an Illinois governor. First, we needed bold leadership. Second, we needed a legitimate path toward stability for the state. JB Pritzker delivered on both of these needs today.

The IDCCA stands with the Governor and applauds his refreshing, straightforward honesty about our fiscal challenges. He’s shown true leadership by proposing a way to cut or stabilize taxes for 97 percent of our residents while adjusting taxes on millionaires who’ve financially fared quite well throughout the years.

We understand that passing a Constitutional Amendment for a fair tax won’t be easy. So we’re ready to offer more than simple lip service. We’re already working with our network of volunteers, activists and partners to support the plan as it becomes an election issue. Rank and file Democrats will work exceptionally hard to build support for a fair tax amendment in 2020.”
