Moylan Committed to Compromise, Cut Waste

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. –State Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, issued the following statement after being sworn in to the Illinois House of Representatives for a new term on Wednesday:

“For the 101st General Assembly, I plan to continue my efforts to create jobs, reduce taxes and protect funding for our local schools. I know many of the residents in my district are tired of bickering and partisan games. They know there are major challenges facing our state and so we as elected officials need to work together to compromise to keep pushing the state forward.”

“On other issues like government transparency and cutting wasteful spending, people should continue to expect me to fight against bureaucracy and red tape. The money people pay in taxes in Illinois should be going to pay for essential services like cancer screenings for women, as well as programs for seniors, veterans and disabled residents. Nothing’s going to stop me from making sure we’re putting people first, not the bureaucrats or politicians.”

“While this is a new term and a new start, I don’t plan to stop going door-to-door or holding events because the taxpayers I represent are my employer, and I see my service to my constituents as a full-time job. I will continue working hard to ensure their voices are heard in Springfield.”
