Kim Clarke Maisch, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, released the following statement concerning Bruce Rauner’s victory in Tuesday’s election:
“Bruce Rauner is clearly the best choice for Illinois’ small businesses. Bruce Rauner comes from the business community. He understands that government mandates and high taxes make it even harder for small, family businesses to grow and create jobs. It’s time we had a governor who sees the big picture, who understands what it takes to keep people working and to make Illinois competitive again and build a strong economy.”
NFIB is the state’s leading small-business association.
