The Rockford Area is served by two senators.  Democrat Steve Stadelman, and Republican Dave Syverson. The two couldn’t be more different. Recently in the state budget battle, while Stadelman pushed for the 32% permanent tax increase, Syverson rallied against it.  Syverson, thoughout his career, has always fought against tax increases.

Dave has been widely recognized for common sense approach to improving Illinois’ jobs climate. One accomplishment is creating the Illinois Manufacturing caucus. The objective of the caucus is to bring more focus on the importance of the manufacturing industry in Illinois.

Brady issued the following statement:

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dave Syverson for more than fifteen years, and there is no one more qualified to serve as Deputy Leader. Dave is a veteran lawmaker who is widely recognized for his common sense approach to improving the state’s jobs climate. His experience, particularly on economic issues, will be invaluable in the coming year.

Regarding his new position, Syverson said:

It’s an honor to be selected. I’m pleased to have Leader Brady’s confidence and look forward to serving in this new capacity.  Illinois is facing tremendous challenges and I anticipate to working closely with the Leader to tackle these important issue

The job comes with no salary increase that taxpayers will have to fund.

We hope that with this new promotion, Rockford will have a larger voice in Springfield.

Congratulations, Sen Syverson!
