In a press release, the retired teacher and school administrator said he would "continue to fight to end Illinois’ tax and spend spiral," as well as to stop Governor Quinn’s closure of southern Illinois’ health care and correctional facilities, which he recently called "morally irresponsible."
Cavaletto says his major focus will continue to be on promoting pro-growth economic policies, fighting to repeal the income tax increase, and bringing down unemployment.
“The future of our state really hangs in the balance now,” Cavaletto said. “It’s going to take leadership to repeal the income tax increase and give small businesses a chance to compete. We need to do everything we can to grow the private sector and lower unemployment.”
