Wilson Honored to Receive the Endorsement of Former Governor Rod Blagojevich
WHO: Humanitarian & Businessman Dr. Willie Wilson, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich WHAT: Dr. Wilson will receive the formal endorsement of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich in his race to
become the next U.S. Senator from Illinois
WHEN: Wednesday , October 21, 2020 at 10:00am
WHERE: Corner of Ogden and Harrison (Cook County Hospital)
WHY: Dr. Wilson stated: I am pleased to have the support of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. He did more to help African Americans, Latinos and senior citizens than any previous governor. He understands that Illinois needs a senator that will put people ahead of politics. His Seniors Ride Free program was very creative and helpful to senior citizens taking public transportation.
“We need a senator with new bold and fresh ideas. A senator that will listen to the people and not party bosses. Sen. Durbin over 37 years in office has forgotten about the people that sent him to Washington.
Dr. Wilson is a man of the people. He has used his resources to help seniors, children, people losing their homes because of high property taxes, and those who could not afford to post bail for misdemeanor offenses. Dr. Wilson will make us proud in Washington, DC. I am very pleased to endorse Dr. Wilson for the United States Senate,” says former Gov. Blagojevich.
“I pledge to bring federal resources to all communities in Illinois. Especially, those communities that have high levels of unemployment and violence. Also, I will advocate for Transportation resources to stimulate local economies and improve the infrastructure. I will utilize my position to advocate for lower federal taxes and property taxes with elected officials in Illinois,” says Dr. Wilson.
Dr. Wilson stated: Additionally, I will work to bring federal resources for local governments to deal with COVID-19. Our municipalities need money for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and their businesses that are struggling. As a businessman, I understand the importance of economic development, and connecting entrepreneurs to international business opportunities. Clearly, small businesses drive jobs and stabilize communities. I am committed to working with all elected officials across Illinois to improve the quality of life for all residents.
