Desi's Statement on the Grocery Tax

Desi Anderson, Candidate for State Senate in the 46th District has released a statement on the opposition to the state grocery tax:

“Despite gas prices slightly decreasing, Illinoisans are still paying more for groceries than they ever have. It’s no wonder why so many people are leaving Illinois - they continue to get hit from every side as they are trying to work and provide for their families, and some are still recovering from the extreme economic shutdowns during COVID. As Democrats in Springfield falsely help out consumers during an election year, the people of central Illinois need a serious fix to this ongoing issue. I call on the majority in the state legislature to eliminate the state’s grocery tax so Illinois families can stop drowning in high prices and taxes. It’s time for the 46th district to have a representative that will fight to make Illinois more affordable.” - Desi Anderson, Candidate for State Senate in the 46th District
