About the Governor
As Governor, JB Pritzker is thinking big for all of Illinois. Focusing on growing our economy and creating jobs, stabilizing state government and balancing our budget, expanding healthcare to all Illinoisans, and investing in cradle to career education. Governor Pritzker’s agenda serves every region of our state, so no one is left behind.
Elected by the largest margin in a generation, Governor Pritzker knows it’s time for a change in Illinois. That’s why he works hard every day to put state government back on the side of working families. Governor Pritzker is committed to raising wages, reducing healthcare costs, expanding child care assistance, and increasing college affordability because he believes it’s the job of state government to improve the standard of living for all our residents. He has worked for decades as a national leader in early childhood education and intends to make Illinois the leading state in the nation for our youngest children. Governor Pritzker is working to reform our criminal justice system, end the epidemic of gun violence, prioritize mental health and defend and expand the individual and civil rights of every Illinoisan.
