It was another Facebook Live event for the Governor. Bruce Rauner was joined by Jim Schultz the head of the state’s new public private business support group Intersect Illinois. Rauner focused on creating jobs and retaining business to build the state’s economy.
Rauner didn’t read any questions that would be deemed tough as his staff selected the ones that he would answer. Rauner says that Intersect Illinois is being funded by private donations.
Schultz says that he see’s Intersect Illinois as the go to place to help businesses expand and thrive.
Intersect Illinois currently has 7 employees, with a hope to have 25 people working by next year to bring business to Illinois and assist one’s that are already here.
