The primary election is only a few days away, and that’s when we see the worst of politicians and recently you may have seen some so-called “attack” ads. Frankly, I’m disappointed my opponent, backed by Chicago politicians, stooped to this level of lies and distortions.
Ronald Reagan always talked about the 11th amendment “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” And I believe in that. So let me get to the facts:
• I have and always will support term limits
• I have been one of the most outspoken critics of Mike Madigan and his corrupt machine
• I have opposed pay raises for lawmakers and will take a voluntary 10 percent pay cutRead more
-Supports term limits
-Will cut his own pay and refuse lavish pension
-Will lead the fight against corrupt Mike Madigan
The following statement was released by Dwight Kay, Republican candidate for state Representative in Illinois’ 112th House district:
“It’s time for Mike Madigan to go. After multiple, credible reports that for years Madigan’s office has been a den of personal intimidation and sexual predation, I—as a taxpaying citizen—demand his immediate resignation.
“I also call upon state Rep. Katie Stuart to join me in condemning his despicable actions. Madigan’s operation is so horrendous one female Democrat lawmaker said the way his office treats women is ‘an abuse of power.’
“It’s bad enough Madigan is the kingpin of the corruption in Springfield which has hurt our families with higher property taxes and fewer jobs. Now we learn he has been protecting sexual predators for years. He must resign.”
As I walk door to door speaking to voters the number one topic on people's minds is our skyrocketing property taxes. Property taxes in Illinois have doubled in recent years, and we now have the honor of paying the highest taxes in the nation!
We can thank the incompetent and corrupt government leaders in Springfield, led by long-time Chicago kingpin Mike Madigan, for the property tax burden placed on Illinois families. But Madigan is merely a pawn of public sector unions, who bankroll the Democrat majorities in the legislature.
That's why I support a freeze on property taxes at 1% and a requirement that local referendum be held if a taxing body wants more. Let the people decide. It's also why, if elected, I will not accept a pension and I will cut my pay by 10%.
Most of all, we need more fiscal discipline in Illinois to take the burden off of Illinois families like yours and mine.
I'm back! As you may have heard I filed paperwork to run for the 112th District, which I had the privilege of serving from 2011-2017. I am running again because Springfield continues to demonstrate its contempt for the people of Illinois by increasing taxes and refusing to pass necessary reforms.
Frankly, Springfield is a disaster and we need a voice to fight the incompetence and corruption in the General Assembly. Because of my past outspokenness, the failed leadership of the Springfield "swamp" has arrayed powerful interests against me in this election. But I am confident that we the people will prevail.
If we don't bring back common sense and family-friendly policies, the state will continue its steady decline. Rolling back property taxes, repealing the recently increased income tax hike and working to bring back jobs to southern Illinois are at the top of my agenda. As I have done in the past I will cut my pay by 10 percent and refuse to accept the pension lawmakers lavish on themselves.Read more
With Springfield continuing to demonstrate its contempt for the people of Illinois by increasing taxes and refusing to pass necessary reforms, businessman and former state Rep. Dwight Kay filed his paperwork today for the 112th District, vowing to fight incompetence and corruption in the General Assembly.
“Springfield is a disaster,” said Kay, who filed with the State Board of Elections with over 1,300 signatures, more than double the required amount. “If we don’t bring back common sense and family-friendly policies, the state will continue its steady decline.”
Rolling back property taxes, repealing the recently increased income tax hike and working to bring back jobs to southern Illinois are at the top of Kay’s agenda. He added he would cut his lawmaker pay by 10 percent and refuse to accept the pension lawmakers lavish on themselves.Read more
