Darren Bailey: 'I come with solutions'
Darren Bailey wants voters to look beyond themselves when they head to the polls Tuesday.
“I’m telling everyone that we have to think of the future in deciding how we need to be voting,” Bailey told SE Illinois News. “We need to understand that to keep taxing people not only adds to the burden we all now feel it effectively takes from future generations.”
Bailey, running against Democrat Cynthia Given for a House seat in the 109th District, said the difference between his vision and his opponent's is like night and day.
“I come with solutions to the problems that now plague this state, while she will be nothing more than another pawn for (House Speaker) Mike Madigan,” he said. “Every question that comes up she dances around it with not much to say. My background is that I’ve owned and started new businesses and have a better focus on real world situations.”
Bailey added that Given is just one of many Democrats offering few practical solutions to the state’s many problems.
“Democrats have no plan and voters need to address that by making sure their voices are heard at the ballot box on Nov. 6,” he said.
Even legislation top Democrats like gubernatorial nominee J.B. Pritzker have publicly come out in support of does not have the backing of most residents, Bailey said.
“He said he would have gone even further with abortion expansion bill HB 40 and has said the NRA would have no safe space in terms of the Second Amendment,” he said. “Plus, we all know that he will absolutely tax us to death. We’re talking about two different states if we’re under Democratic leadership as opposed to Republicans.”
The 109th House District includes Clay, Edwards, Effingham, Jasper, Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, Wayne and White counties.
