Letter: Noble goals

To the Editor:

Bruce Rauner is a very successful business executive who is running for governor of Illinois, and I am supporting him in his candidacy for two reasons.

First, he wants to introduce term limits in this state. This is a long overdue reform that will create political integrity in a state notorious for a lack of anything resembling integrity.

Second, as a successful businessman, it is hoped that he will be able to successfully address the financial crisis that this state has faced for so long. These are noble goals and I will support Mr. Rauner in his quest. I hope that you as a reader will do the same.

Keep in mind that this will be a tough process, but if you will write your state representative and senator, telling them that this is what you as a voter want done, it will be a good start. These people need to be reminded that they work for us, not the reverse. The state and federal legislatures both need to be told they work for us, not the powerful monies that they cater to.

These are noble goals, and they clearly support Mr. Bruce Rauner. If all the voters don’t write their elected officials in their districts expressing their outrage, things will never change. Elected officials understand clearly that term limits will force them out of office at the end of a reasonable time, but too many feel they want to remain in office as career politicians even if they aren’t performing as supportive people representing their voters.
