New Drobinski ad lays out economic reform goals
Rod Drobinski, the Republican candidate for the District 62 state House seat, recently expressed his readiness to repair Illinois in a 30-second ad.
"We all know the problems with Springfield," Drobinski said. "We need term limits, property tax relief and more funding for our schools."
Drobinski's campaign platform includes issues supported by a majority of Illinois voters, such as term limits and independent maps for redistricting. Changing the system from within is the only effective method of fulfilling voters' expectations. Previous attempts at voter-initiated amendments to impose term limits and wrest control of redistricting from the legislature were declared unconstitutional by state courts.
Property tax relief for Illinois' long-suffering homeowners is another campaign issue that Drobinski is ready to face. Unfunded mandates from the state drive up costs for local government and school districts. Property taxes are often used to fill the gap between expenditures and state funding.
Drobinski has proposed making structural changes to the school system so that money sent to schools is used for the students in the classroom, not for administrative and bureaucratic costs. He is opposed to taking funding from fiscally responsible districts and redistributing it to districts that have managed their budgets poorly.
Drobinski is ready to face these challenges and work with his colleagues in a bipartisan effort to turn Illinois around.
"Some say it's too late for Illinois, but I'll never cut and run," Drobinski said.
