Jason Plummer, a small businessman from downstate Edwardsville, will
enter the Republican primary for Lt. Governor during a statewide tour
of Illinois scheduled for next week. If elected, Plummer will bring
his unique vision to revitalize the office of Lt. Governor.
Plummer has worked in the family business, R.P. Lumber, headquartered
in Edwardsville and subsidiary companies focusing on property
development and technology investments. "As a small businessman, I
know what it takes to create new jobs in Illinois," according to
Plummer. "Our family is proud and humbled by the fact that we employ
hundreds of people in our lumberyards and other companies in
Illinois," he said.
"As Lt. Governor, I will draw from that experience and use the office
as a bully pulpit to help create new and meaningful jobs and
revitalize the Illinois economy," Plummer continued. "I will also
work with employers, both small and large, to help remove the
bureaucratic roadblocks that unnecessarily hinder their ability to
grow their businesses and provide job opportunities and career growth
to the hardworking people of Illinois," he added.
