Demmer: State of State Address can be summed up in one word: “Opportunity.”

Dixon… State Representative Tom Demmer (R-Dixon) issued the following statement following Gov. Bruce Rauner’s State of the State Address:  

“The Governor’s address today can be summed up in one word: “Opportunity.”

“We have the opportunity to work together in a bipartisan fashion to fix our State.  We have the opportunity to create jobs and bring back economic prosperity.  We have the opportunity to invest in education and continue to be a leader in education funding.  We have the opportunity to reform our criminal justice system and reduce the violence that plagues the City of Chicago.  While these issues can be viewed as challenges as well, I appreciated the fact that Governor Rauner sees the opportunities that exist to get Illinois back on the right track,” said Rep. Tom Demmer on Wednesday following the Governor’s address in Springfield.
