Illinois gubernatorial candidate Senator Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, met with members of the Illinois Self Storage Association Board of Directors on July 7 to discuss the association’s concerns over a service tax that may be applied to self-storage rentals. Sen. Brady said he does not support the new proposed taxes for Illinois and promised he will not support a service tax if he is elected.
After the meeting, the ISSA Board voted to endorse Sen. Brady’s campaign. The association sent him a letter indicating its support. ISSA is encouraging all of its members to support his candidacy for governor.
Sen. Brady and a partner own a self-storage facility, which he uses primarily for a construction company he also owns.
Present at the meeting were ISSA Executive Director Michael Lane, President Mike Metzger, Vice President Mary Ellen Brown and Director Phil Murphy. Also present was ISSA lobbyist Randy Witter.
