A C.E.O.'s job is leadership, problem solving, and team building. I've done that my whole career.
Being a successful CEO, where I've driven a bottom line, assembled teams, driven results, that's a critical benefit to running the state government.
I'm a pretty disciplined investor and pretty disciplined buyer. I do my due diligence. I do my homework. I don't waste money.
I'm a lover of fairs and corn dogs.
I'm a big outdoorsman... I'm a big hunter. Avid fisherman. Hiker. Climber. Scuba diver. Skier. Love the outdoors.
I have my strong views and opinions. I really want to transform Illinois government because this state is failing the taxpayers and the children.
I don't have a Rolls. I don't have a jet. That's not me.
Mitch Daniels in Indiana was the best governor in America for eight years. I've gone to Indianapolis to study with him.
I've completely lost faith in the Democratic Party to truly serve the disadvantaged.
Our government works should be treated fairly and appropriately; they should have a decent retirement, but not a gold-plated system where they can retire multimillionaires in their 50s.
I've been very engaged in Illinois and Chicago civic activities for a long time; mostly around building businesses and helping entrepreneurs grow companies, but also around education and education reform.
