Party Meeting

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner

Fighting Rauner’s cynical plan

We have solid evidence that Bruce Rauner’s big economic “turnaround” plan is nothing more than a cynical wealth re-distribution scheme for his friends in the top 1%. Rauner still believes in trickle-down economics, the Laffer Curve, and other discredited fantasies from the 1980’s. He knows he can't get his plan through the state legislature, so he’s decided to push it through at the municipal and county level. Suddenly, McHenry County is where all the action is. We are his target.

Every village and city in our county is being pressured to adopt Rauner’s cynical plan. The "Turnaround Resolution" is fill-in-the-blanks boilerplate aimed at setting the stage for a complete destruction of workers’ rights. We have to fight back. Tonight, we will discuss our strategy for making the case to local governments that Rauner’s plan is wrong for working families and wrong for Illinois.

We will meet at McHenry County College in room B166-167 near the cafeteria and the Commons area of the College. Park near the flagpole entrance and enter the B Building.
