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.
