From the Paul Schimpf for Illinois Attorney General campaign comes reason #4 to vote for him over Lisa Madigan: He will prioritize anti-corruption which will lead to a stronger economy here in Illinois.
The economic and fiscal situation in Illinois has its citizens leaving the state at an increasingly rapid rate. In addition to a failing economy, Illinoisans are overtaxed. According to a recent study, excessive corruption in Illinois costs each individual over $1300 per year, totaling $16.8 Billion in wasted tax dollars annually. Illinois simply cannot afford to outsource this problem to the Department of Justice. As Attorney General, my prioritization of anti-corruption efforts will reduce this burden on taxpayers and help get Illinois back on track.
