McCombie expresses support of presidential address to Illinois General Assembly
Tony McCombie, Republican candidate for Illinois District 71 and current mayor of Savanna, recently spoke in support of President Barack Obama's remarks to the Illinois General Assembly.
She echoed his message of practicing practical, respectful and responsible leadership by working together.
McCombie spoke positively of Gov. Bruce Rauner's fight for reform and a balanced budget, while pointing out the current stalemate in the legislature. She laid the blame for the deadlocked budget at the feet of Illinois Speaker of the House Michael Madigan, stating that he does not have his constituents' best interests in mind and that he is unwilling to work toward reforms that could benefit Illinois' economic growth.
"I will fight to change the political system and work to bridge the divide," McCombie said. "I will serve those that have lost representation over the last several years, and will fight alongside Gov. Rauner, President Obama and anyone acting in good faith to ensure the state government is serving and protecting the people’s interests."
McCombie announced her campaign for state representative on Sept. 19. Her campaign prioritizes education, job growth and serving the constituents.
