ILLINOIS STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 79: Parkhurst Responds to State of the State Address


By Press release submission | Feb 4, 2020


Illinois State House District 79 issued the following announcement on Jan. 29

State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst (R-Kankakee) issued the following statement after Governor JB Pritzker’s State of the State address on January 29th:

“As Illinois residents and businesses continue to flee our state, we need true reform now more than ever. Our state’s population is at its lowest—and will continue to decrease if we don’t produce serious change. This means across the board reform efforts and we must start with ethics. The dark cloud of a massive federal investigation hovering over our state government impedes our progress, disenfranchises our residents, and inhibits our ability to make real change.

This is a new legislative year. Let’s start it off on the right foot with a new path by adopting common sense reforms to root out the corruption that has too long permeated our state and undermined our residents.”
