Wauconda Republicans Endorse David McSweeney

Wauconda Township Republican Club Endorses McSweeney
The Wauconda Township Republican Organization has announced their official endorsement of David McSweeney’s campaign for State Representative in the 52nd District. McSweeney was chosen in a vote of the rank and file members of the club.

“We’re proud to endorse David McSweeney. He is a dynamic leader who will fight for lower taxes and real reform in Springfield,” said Bob Gottardo, Chairman of the Wauconda Township Republican Club.

McSweeney has attended a number of events in the Wauconda area and has been received well with his message of cutting taxes and spending in Springfield. His top priority is to repeal the 67% increase in the state income tax that is killing jobs in Illinois. In addition, McSweeney has supported stopping property tax increases when property values are going down. The legislature in Springfield failed to approve bipartisan legislation providing tax relief to property owners.

“I am very proud to have the endorsement of the Wauconda Township Republican Club. These are the people who are in the trenches carrying the Republican banner and I look forward to working with them in the campaign and when I get to the legislature. I will be a fiscal hawk cutting taxes and spending and making sure that property tax payers get relief,” said McSweeney.

Economic Growth Agenda

Cutting Taxes. Reducing State Spending.
Economic Growth

“The only way to grow our Illinois economy and lower our unemployment rate is to cut taxes and reduce spending. More money will then stay in the hands of individuals and businesses and the result will be a better economic climate.”
-David McSweeney

Economic Growth Agenda
Freeze Property Tax Levies and Empowering Voters
If property assessments go down, the property taxes should not go up.

Repeal of the 67% Tax Increase on Individuals and Businesses in Illinois
Businesses and people are leaving Illinois because of higher taxes. In fact, since the tax increase, unemployment in Illinois has gone up.

Reduce State Spending
Illinois needs pension reform and budget cuts to help our economy: For the last several budget cycles, Illinois State Government has annually spent more money than it received in tax revenues and federal aid. The result: budget deficits, pension liabilities, and an unfriendly economic and business environment.1

Government Reform
Reduce legislators’ pay, eliminate legislators’ pensions, and stope the use of taxpayer dollars for their campaigns.
