The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters took to the streets last week in Chicago, Springfield, Peoria, DeKalb, and Aurora to raise awareness about construction industry tax fraud. We had a great turnout and by all accounts our message was heard loud and clear! Construction industry tax fraud undermines our law-abiding signatory contractors, the economics of the State of Illinois, and the communities in which we live. We must hold cheating contractors accountable to pay their fair share.
ILLINOIS STATE CAPITOL
Our main event at the Illinois State Capitol Building in Springfield featuring Executive Secretary-Treasurer Gary Perinar, Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, Illinois Senate President Don Harmon, Illinois House Speaker Emanuel "Chris" Welch, State Senator Mike Hastings, and Roger Huebner of the Central Illinois Builder’s Association generated numerous media stories.
Our Facebook Live virtual event featured Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza, Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs, U.S. Congresswoman Marie Newman, U.S. Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, Chicago Alderman Ray Lopez, and Denk & Roche President Terrence Roche. We also had an event in Aurora with Mayor Richard Irvin and Fox Valley Building Trades President Brian Dahl.
