SPOTLIGHT: Jeanne Ives Addresses Marijuana and Illinois’ Economic Crisis

Written by Benjamin Smith

This week’s Spotlight features Jeanne Ives as she presents facts and figures that underscore the stark reality Democrats in the Land of Lincoln are unwilling to face. As a former Illinois state representative and recent gubernatorial candidate, Ms. Ives is supremely qualified to speak to the myriad of problems that plague our state.

Rather than relying on anticipated (i.e., overly optimistic and ultimately insufficient) tax revenue from legal recreational marijuana to solve Illinois’ economic crisis, pension mismanagement, and outmigration woes, Ms. Ives details why we should instead leverage our strengths, tap into our potential, and grow our employer base. Additionally, she offers an exhortation to the electorate at the grassroots level to be motivated, informed, and willing to work to get out the vote and/or personally run for public office in order to make a change for the better.

Respectfully request they do not legalize marijuana in Illinois. Additionally, please call your lawmakers to make sure they know that many people oppose this disastrous policy. The Capitol switchboard number is (217) 782-2000.
