* Bruce Rauner…
As a father of six children, I taught my kids to be proud of their home. Illinois is where I grew up and where I chose to raise a family; it has always been so important to me that my children know how special our state is and all that it has accomplished.
That’s why I ran for Governor.
As my children grew older, I couldn’t continue to watch career politicians ruin our state. When I accepted the job of Governor, I did so with our state’s future, the children of Illinois, in mind.
Now, the very future of our state is at stake. This past week, I called a special session to bring the General Assembly together in Springfield to pass a balanced budget with real, lasting reforms for our state.
On this Father’s Day weekend, I ask you all to join me as we create a more prosperous Illinois. Sign here to show your support for real reforms and a balanced budget so that we can secure a brighter future for our children and grandchildren.
We’ll never stop working to bring back our state, and your support will continue to fuel our progress.
* Sen. Daniel Biss…
When Daniel first started as a state legislator years ago, and when Elliot and Theodore were very small, Daniel used to write notes to the kids for each of the days he was gone. The kids called them Daddy letters.
Daddy letters were Daniel’s way of letting our children know that no matter how crazy a day he’s having, he’s always thinking of them. Sometimes the letters were sweet. Sometimes they were a little goofy. Sometimes they just brought much needed smiles.
Whatever they said, these letters were just one of the many ways Daniel showed he care about them. And, whether he was on the road or not, he always made sure he made quality time a priority. Here’s Daniel playing blocks with Theodore:
That’s the kind of guy he is: loving, selfless, and willing to do the little things that make a big difference. Daniel has always been there for me and the kids, and I know he’ll do the same for Illinois.
Let’s make Father’s Day one to remember. If you haven’t signed our card, will you wish him a Happy Father’s Day today?
