I really didn’t want to post this video today, but I’m going to anyway. Chris Koos made a campaign commercial featuring Normal for JB Pritzker.
One would almost think Pritzker was governor when Rivian bought the plant. (He wasn’t)
One would think the Feds hadn’t poured printed money into Illinois that helps cause inflation but helped the State finances. (Not yours!)
One would think the Rivian investors hadn’t thrown billions at the plant and Illinois did. One would think early investor’s in Rivian stock hadn’t lost their shirts either. How much have locals lost?
One would think Pritzker hadn’t raised taxes on fees on the working families of Illinois. In case you forgot how much more Illinois is stealing from you under Pritzker: https://www.illinoispolicy.org/pritzkers-record-24-tax-fee-hikes-taking-5-24-billion-more-from-illinoisans/
Even NBC Chicago admits Pritzker’s “tax relief” is only until after the November election: https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/chicago-politics/gov-pritzker-to-sign-46-5b-budget-with-tax-relief-after-illinois-lawmakers-approve/2810221/
Watching this video one might think Illinois’s pension crisis is over. Hint: It’s worse since JB took office.
Evidently Chris Koos had no hand in the job growth Normal is experiencing. Anyone know what happened at that Rivian meeting last Friday? Rivian hired a lot of people that didn’t have any training touted in this video, Pritzker isn’t responsible for the new employment.
Has Pritzker toured the empty spaces in Uptown? How many huge corporations have moved out of Illinois under Pritzker?
Listen all the way to the end, it sounds more like Pritzker is trying himself out for President in 2024 instead of wanting to be re-elected.
Luckily the video is only 1 minute long. Maybe Pritzker can find someone to rent the first floor of 1 Uptown Circle and get Normal taxpayers out of the $37,000+ a month rent on the second floor. Koos sure can’t.
How much Normal taxpayer money was spent making this video?
Don’t forget Pritzker masked your kids and kept them out of school. Pritzker, the picture of health, refused to comply with courts that ruled his tyranny illegal. Pritzker also proved criminals are more important than your police. He stripped them of the ability to enforce laws.
