I am running for this office because I believe we deserve a better government in Springfield. Over the last three years our state’s financial situation has gone from bad to worse because we have a Republican governor and Democratic legislature who can’t work together. This fiscal strain is driving families and businesses out of Illinois. We need new leaders in this state who are able to compromise and find solutions to our budget problems.
My priorities include:
- Selecting a new Speaker of the House;
- Putting an end to gerrymandering, and;
- Getting our financial house in order. We need to pay the billions in overdue bills and resolve our pension crisis so the state has the funding available to invest in education and the restoration of our social service network.
Voters are tired of partisan bickering. As your State Representative, I will stand for all of the people in the 47th District, working with Democrats and Republicans alike to make Illinois stronger.
