RE: Peoria Innovation District
The Business PAC of Central Illinois (BizPAC) strongly recommends APPROVAL of the resolution to establish a Downtown Peoria Innovation District. The establishment of this district will help confirm that Peoria is a community committed to innovation.
In November 2020 there will be a vote on a constitutional amendment to change from a flat income tax to a graduated income tax. There are three major problems with this proposal.
BizPAC conducts a candidate survey in addition to personal 1 on 1 interviews in order to select those who most strongly support the local business community.
