Help state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, who is running for governor in the Republican primary, protect your wallet from the politicians. He has the breadth of experience in areas that make all the difference.|
He knows business from 25 years as an executive in one of our largest service companies. He knows how the legislative branch works from 18 years in the General Assembly and now serves as treasurer.
Actions always tell more about a man than talk does. The first time I met Dan he asked: "When was the last time you had to visit the state treasurer's office?"
He said, "The only reason to have so many treasurer's offices is for political purposes." Within only 30 days of becoming treasurer Dan kept his word, and closed six offices.
He also cut the treasurer's budget by 10 percent the past three years. This resulted in significant savings.
As treasurer, his job is to invest our money, and he has good ideas on how to put budgeting back on a sound fiscal footing through those experiences.
As a legislator, Dan tirelessly championed the elderly getting fair treatment by chairing the Long Term Care Task Force. He included all who had a vested interest, as well holding 15 public hearings throughout the state. We need this leader who listens to all the people.
Dan keeps his word, listens to people, is fiscally responsible, with broad experience and is the kind of man we need to lead Illinois on the road back to fiscal soundness. Then once again we can be proud to say we live in Illinois.
