“The final straw was when Illinois raised its income taxes. That did it for me.”
Gayle Frerichs | Frerichs Trucking
Quoted in Champaign News-Gazette, August 8, 2012
- January ’11: Sen. Mike Frerichs (D-Champaign) voted for 67% income tax hike.
- Soon after, his own cousin’s trucking business fled to Covington, Indiana.
Why did Gayle Frerichs move the business to Indiana?
“Springfield is so non-business-friendly,” said Gayle Frerichs. Citing high workers compensation costs, taxes, healthcare, fees, and license plate costs, Frerichs will save $90,000- $100,000 every year for his 20 person company.

All these “taxes” are crushing Illinois job creation. In Frerichs’ district alone, the June employment rate is 10.5% in Vermillion County and 9.1% in Champaign County.
The 7,000 units of Illinois government already spend $100 billion in taxes.
Here’s the bad news: if Frerichs is re-elected, he may well spearhead the next income tax hike. If you’re a productive, hard-working family, business, taxpayer, or senior, you’re stuck with the bill.
For the Good of Illinois PAC.
