Jobs, the Economy, & Supporting Small Businesses

The high cost of doing business in Illinois is driving our small businesses to neighboring states. Taxes, workers’ compensation costs and the uncertainty of a sustainable future are reasons job-creators are leaving Illinois.

As a CPA representing small businesses for years, I feel it is irresponsible of our state government to impose tax increases and onerous regulations that will make it more difficult for small businesses to be successful and thrive in Illinois. I founded and partner in a firm that has been in Illinois for over 20 years and employs Illinois residents, and we are committed to staying here because this is our home.

As state Representative, Alyssia will sponsor and support legislation that will make it easier for small businesses to be competitive in Illinois.

Balancing the Budget

Politicians in Springfield have been playing games for too long with our tax dollars. It’s completely unacceptable that they refuse to that the rob “Peter to pay Paul” antics hurt our communities.

A truly balanced state budget is imperative to a thriving economy and secure future for our state. When we operate with a balanced budget, businesses feel more confident about staying in Illinois for the long-term. It also provides stability to our state’s economy and allows funding for much-needed programs to be stable from year-to-year.

As a state Representative, I will work with everyone – Republicans and Democrats – in good faith and with conviction to make sure we have a balanced budget every year.
