Tom Cross Endorsed for Illinois Treasurer by Illinois Observer

Endorsement from Illinois Observer
Hot on the heels of their round of Illinois State Representative endorsements, the Editorial Board over at the Illinois Observer has released their endorsement for the Republican nomination for Illinois Treasurer.

Their pick?  Tom Cross for Illinois Treasurer.
Cross has pledged to be a “bold” Treasurer, acting beyond the narrow, ministerial limits of the job. He has promised that “priority one” would be to enforce Illinois’ constitutional requirement that the state budget be balanced, even dragging the state into court if necessary. Additionally, Cross would create a Government Integrity Unit and develop a Fiscal Report Card to be distributed to taxpayers. Cross’ deep legislative experience of budget making, record of moderation – supporting both a woman’s right to chose and same sex marriage – and, most important – a bold, aggressive agenda for the treasurer’s office uniquely qualify him to be treasurer. Few candidates who present themselves for the post are as well qualified. Cross is enthusiastically endorsed.
