Free 10-page guide outlines challenges and potential solutions to key regional and statewide issues gaining traction as we head into 2006 election season.
With so much on the line in Illinois in the 2006
elections – including the governor’s office, two-thirds of the state Senate, and
the entire House of Representatives – it’s critical that voters have the
information they need to elect officials committed to shaping sound public
policy and healthy, economically vibrant communities. That’s why MPC created
this free 10-page Election Guide
, which outlines
challenges and potential solutions for regional and statewide issues gaining
traction as we head into the election season: affordable and workforce housing,
transportation priorities, education funding and tax reform, water quality and
quantity, and eminent domain.
The guide also offers suggested questions on each topic
that voters and reporters
can use to test
the mettle of candidates for local and statewide office. In addition, the
guide lists local, state and national resources voters and reporters can tap
to expand their knowledge of issues that will shape our region and
state in years to come.
