Qualifications: I am a businesswoman with 20 years of business experience and have spent the past 17 years with a significant focus on acquiring new business, thus creating new job opportunities, in the following business areas: energy, manufacturing, financial, automotive, aerospace, chemical, bio-tech, pharmaceutical, health care, insurance, medical, telecommunication, transportation, government and education. I have significant experience assisting business growth with both large international companies and small mom and pop shops. I have five goals in 100 days: 1. Repeal the Democrats' tax hike; 2. Cut spending and balance the budget; 3. Get Illinois back to work with real business solutions for job creation; 4. 10 percent pay cut and term limits for state elected officials; 5. Protect Second Amendment rights and work to pass concealed carry.
Top issues: Send equal tax dollars down state. Get people back to work, create a better, competitive business climate, repeal the 67 percent income tax hike, stop wasteful spending, protect and fix the pension system, and protect our Second Amendment and Constitutional Rights -- concealed carry must become the law of the land.
