Schock says he is endorsing Cross because of his attention to central Illinois over the years, as well as his focus on ensuring the state’s budget is balanced.
“Illinois needs leaders we can trust and I trust Tom Cross. Tom has been a strong advocate for Central Illinois and has led the effort to support key job creation initiatives for our region while ensuring our schools and universities receive their fair share of state investment,” said Schock. “Tom is running for treasurer because he wants to restore trust, protect taxpayers and make a real, serious difference in the lives of our state’s citizens.”
Cross is facing off against DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan in the March 18 primary.
