Letter: Supporting Pierog for Illinois Senate District 25

By on November 1, 2012

I am writing to encourage people in the Illinois Senate District 25 to vote for Corinne Pierog. Corinne is a resident of St. Charles and serves on the St. Charles School Board. She also is a local businesswoman, as well as the founder and president of Sustainable Leadership Solutions, a consulting company that advises nonprofits and government agencies on fundraising, management, economic development and executive transitioning.

As a School Board member, Corinne is of course an advocate for our schools, but as a businesswoman, she also knows what it’s like to start up a business. She understands the problems facing our economy. That’s why her main reason for running is to put people back to work. Some of her solutions include providing tax incentives for small businesses—not just large corporations—and providing help to schools, colleges and training facilities so they can better educate our residents for existing jobs and those of the future. She wants to bring manufacturing plants back to Illinois, and encourage research and development institutions to locate here.

Corinne is not a “politician.” She is a local businesswoman who wants to work to fix the problems in Springfield. She cares. That’s why I am giving her my vote.
