Illinois Has Issues: Gov Candidates Talk Income And Property Taxes

Let’s face it. Illinois has issues. And how our next governor addresses them will help determine whether those issues get solved. Leading up to Illinois primary on March 20, Morning Shift has done in-depth interviews with the men and women who want to replace Governor Bruce Rauner. Now, we’re breaking those interviews down for you around four key issues: Mike Madigan, taxes, gun violence and marijuana. In a series of conversations this week, we’re bringing context and analysis to the candidates’ soundbites on those issues to give you a clear picture of how the Democrats and Republican candidates for governor will act on all four issues if and when they become the state’s chief executive. Today, we discuss where the candidates stand on income taxes and property taxes.
