Morrison to Rauner: Time to focus on jobs

morrison 050918SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) expressed her frustration at the Rauner administration’s failure to keep the U.S. headquarters for Takeda Pharmaceuticals in Deerfield:

“This is a devastating blow to our community. I’m disappointed in the move. I’m even more disappointed that the Rauner administration did nothing to prevent these job losses. This is another example of the governor’s inability to run this state and focus on what matters.

“Takeda is leaving behind hundreds of talented workers that are an asset to the Illinois research industry. The governor has the opportunity to help pick up these pieces and move Illinois forward.”
