Summary of tonight’s show with Gary Rabine:
Gary Rabine, likely Republican Gov candidate says it’s time to “Make Illinois a Destination State again.”
Rabine climbed the business ladder of success:
Right after graduating from High School, Gary entered the entrepreneurial business world by starting a business- paving drive ways in Lake and McHenry counties- in Northeast IL.
Now, at the top of his game, Gary Rabine is still “A Ditchdigger CEO” but he currently leads eleven small and medium sized companies, employing more than three hundred hard working, high spirited teammates- who share Gary’s tremendous desire to compete to provide the best possible services to their customers.
Rabine promises to make Illinois streets safe again:
In this week’s Part 2 show, Gary Rabine discusses at length how, as Governor, he would have done much more during the summer of 2020 than Gov. Pritzker did to protect the lives, livelihoods, hard earned property and jobs of Illinois’ citizens from looters and rioters.
Rabine emphasizes the importance of supporting law and order- and the police who enforce that law and order. He acknowledges that maybe one per cent of police are not performing well and should be disciplined, and/or removed from the force.
Respect the police- no more “Police stand-downs:”
But, Rabine says, the great majority of police deserve the support of the citizens and the Governor. The Governor, mayors and police chiefs, Rabine says, must work together to enforce law and order, not tell their police to “Stand down,” as apparently happened during the summer of 2020, when public officials let looters and rioters run wild, stealing from stores and destroying property, jobs and lives at will. He would never go along with that, he said, as Governor.
Rabine will attract people and jobs to IL by competing:
In 2022, Gary plans to offer his strong competitive and entrepreneurial spirit to IL- so it can compete with states, adjacent and far away, to “Kick ass,” and attract citizens to come to Illinois, after Gary has persuaded the Legislature to make reforms, making IL the land of:
–low property and low income taxes,
–safe streets, cities and villages,
— high performing schools (chosen by parents from a menu of charter, private voucher and traditional neighborhood schools),
–solid private sector job opportunities, and
–reformed and fiscally sound government budgets.
Rabine would restructure IL’s pension liabilities:
In part 1 of this 2 part series w/Gary Rabine, he spoke of amending IL’s Constitution to permit its Governor and Legislature to negotiate w/unions a restructuring of the State’s and Cities’ massive $400 billion in pension liabilities to a more livable level.
Rabine will end Tax Theft:
In this week’s Part 2, candidate for Governor Rabine talks about ending “Tax Theft.” Gary says Illinois’ taxpayers understand why they have to pay the national average amount of property taxes, about one per cent of their property’s value.
Rabine says Illinois’ citizens would be good with that. But, the 56 year old entrepreneur said they don’t want to pay two or three times the national average for property taxes, which is the current Illinois Property tax level, i.e., 2% or 3% of their property’s value. That’s theft by high taxes- or tax theft, said Rabine.
Rabine: Open IL’s economy and schools:
In part 1 of the two shows, Rabine discussed how science and data supported keeping IL’s economy and schools safely open last year- and he emphasized that he would never have “Shut down the IL economy and schools,” as Gov. Pritzker did. That shut down, by keeping many citizens essentially locked and depressed in their homes, exacerbated the riots and looting last summer in IL, said Rabine in Part 2. Now, says Rabine, it’s time to repair the damage from Gov. Pritzker’s mistake- and open Illinois’ schools and economy.
A time to Lead?
Gary Rabine, Ditchdigger CEO, will try to fix IL by making a run for Gov, and he is planning to announce his Gov candidacy formally tomorrow in Schaumburg, one of the main offices for the Rabine Group.
