State Sen. Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) expressed disappointment upon getting word that Office Depot Inc. intends to locate its new corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, FL.

Cullerton recently sponsored and won initial approval of an incentive package that would have encouraged the company to keep 2,050 jobs in Naperville and bring an additional 200 corporate headquarters positions to the state. The proposal passed the Senate by a 43 to 10 vote Tuesday Dec. 3.

“I did everything I could to bring these jobs to our state, Illinois needs a better approach to business retention,” Cullerton said. “Even with this setback, we need to stay proactive and competitive. I will continue to introduce new legislation making Illinois a better destination for the business community.”
