(Round Lake, IL – November 7, 2011) Lennie Jarratt is officially announcing his candidacy for the 31st State Senate District.

 

I am running on the platform of supporting families, not government.  Too many families in the 31st State Senate District are losing their jobs and homes due to the bad policies coming from Springfield.  These bad policies now have Illinois ranked in the 48th worst financial position. Springfield is broke and their only solution it to squeeze more money from families with higher income taxes, high gas taxes, and internet taxes that destroyed extra income for many home based businesses.

 

My track record of holding local officials accountable for their actions puts Springfield on notice that I am coming to change the culture and end the back room deals.  Together, we can restore fiscal sanity and once again have Springfield policies supporting families, not government.

(Round Lake, IL – March 7, 2011) Lennie Jarratt announces the endorsement of the Illinois Homeschool PAC.

The Illinois Homeschool PAC has made its endorsements in the 2012 Primary Elections. These endorsements are only for the 2012 Primary Elections and are based on candidate responses to the ILHPAC legislative questionnaire. All of these candidates have contested Primary Elections, and there is a clear and demonstrable difference between these candidates and their opponents on the issue of homeschool freedom.

As a homeschool parent of 8 years, I understand the needs of homeschoolers and the job it takes to teach a child. This experience will give me a unique perspective in the requirements to make sure all children in the state have access to a quality education.

(Round Lake, IL – February 22, 2011) Lennie Jarratt Responds to Gov. Quinn’s Budget Proposal. Gov. Quinn claimed to provide us with hard truths about the budget and asked for fundamental change.

Anyone paying attention in Illinois knew we had a “rendezvous with reality” years ago. It is only the out of touch Springfield political elites that have not recognized the realities and burdens their out of control tax and spend policies have placed on the hard working families of this state.

What solutions did Gov. Quinn propose? He didn’t propose real solutions for the major issues facing this state. He called for gimmicks that will costs families more money at the gas pump; he called for more “working groups” to study the problems; he cuts spending to the most vulnerable in our society while continuing to add more debt to our children and grandchildren to pay for.

Gov. Quinn, President Cullerton, Speaker Madigan, Leaders Radogno and Cross, here is a reminder of the commons sense solutions I have already proposed over the past weeks to stop the out of control pensions and to make Illinois a destination state for businesses and jobs.

  1. Voluntary tax cut to all businesses which will Restore Jobs (Full details at RestoreJobs.com)
  2. Pension reform highlighted by 20 year vestment periods, the end to artificially inflated pensions, and a hard cap of $75,000 (Full details at http://www.lenniejarratt.com/issues/pension-reform/)
We must change the culture in Springfield to once again serve the citizens and families of this great state, instead of friends, families and companies of the political insiders.

Lennie Jarratt Proposes Common Sense Pension Reform

(Round Lake, IL – February 15, 2011) Lennie Jarratt proposes common sense pension reform. For years, Springfield has made simple issues complicated; full of loop holes and special rules for certain individuals which allow family, friends and campaign donors to increase their pension retirement payout and take advantage of the Taxpaying public. This has led to an unfunded pension liability of $80 – $100 Billion, depending on what numbers you look at.  Some of the leading factors that have contributed to this problem are the following:

  • Inflated pensions due to end of career salary bumps
  • Short vestment periods
  • Overly generous percentages and early retirement ages
  • Out of control spending and skipping of pension payments

It is time we started having the hard discussions. We can no longer afford to play around the edges of major problems and continue kicking the can down the road to our children and grandchildren. We can solve these problems today with a return to common sense instead of the smoke and mirrors used by the political elites in Springfield.
