Foster Statement on J.B. Pritzker’s Inauguration

Today is a new and exciting day for all citizens of Illinois. I congratulate Governor Pritzker on his inauguration and look forward to seeing all the great things his administration will do for our state. The budget crisis eroded the confidence that citizens of Illinois should have in their government, and too many people suffered when the state government failed to make good on their promises to the elderly and students. I am confident that JB will help get our state back on the right track by creating new jobs and making Illinois a place where everyone will have access to opportunities for a better future.
