A delegation of activists will deliver invitations to Gov. Bruce Rauner donors and corporate beneficiaries of his policies to hear the community’s response to the upcoming State of the State address and the devastation that Rauner’s policies have wreaked on low- and middle-income families.

The invitations will be delivered Monday, Jan. 25 to Citadel hedge fund CEO Ken Griffin, the CEO of Rauner’s former company GTCR, and Bank of America. The delegation will hold a 4:00 p.m. press conference at Citadel, LLC before delivering the invitation to CEO Ken Griffin, the state’s wealthiest resident.

Gov. Rauner has refused to listen to those outside of his income bracket so working families will go directly to the big banks and corporations that the Governor does listen to.

In order to make Rauner’s donors and corporate beneficiaries more comfortable the delegation will don the accouterments of the rich and wealthy that they are used to dealing with including limo and red carpet.
