CRYSTAL LAKE – State Representative Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) was recognized this week by the Illinois Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA) for pro-manufacturing and pro-business votes he took in the House of Representatives in 2015, and he's proud of it.
“Today Illinois is known as a very business-unfriendly state, and as a result, businesses are leaving Illinois and taking their jobs with them,” said Tryon. “With the loss of almost 20,000 manufacturing jobs over the last 18 months alone, I will continue to vote at every opportunity to strengthen Illinois’ job creation efforts.”
Scoring nearly perfect on TMA's rating system, Tryon was among the most dependable votes for bettering Illinois' environment for manufacturing and business industries. Overall, TMA found only 42% of the State Representatives and 39% of the Senators tallied a score of 75% or higher.
“Representative Mike Tryon is one of those rare legislators who truly realizes the importance of employment opportunity,” said TMA President Steven Rauschenberger. “Representative Tryon’s voting record proves that he supports middle class opportunities for families in Illinois. He will be missed when he retires later this year.”
Tryon said that during his 11 and a half years in the House of Representatives, supporting economic development and job growth has always been an important element of his legislative agenda. ”
