This November, don’t forget the suffering Bruce Rauner has caused

To the editor: Regarding the Tribune editorial endorsing Gov. Bruce Rauner:

The one reality that should guide my vote for governor is the financial havoc Rauner caused as the chief executive of Illinois.

As an adjunct instructor at Northeastern Illinois University, I was a witness to the chaos that he was mainly responsible for. Due to severe budget cuts, faculty and staff were affected by unpaid furloughs, layoffs, the elimination of positions and bumping based on seniority. Some exceptional employees even moved out of state to escape the financial chaos.

What happened at Northeastern was replicated across the state in every educational institution, department or agency that depended on state funding.
