I will work for you.
I believe Illinois is in need of strong leadership. For too long career politicians have ignored their constituents, which has resulted in the near total collapse of our state. The decisions being made now will affect all of us 20 years from now.
For too long, career politicians have ignored your opinions and only cared about their own interests. That's why we have a 32% income tax increase, no property tax relief, and an exodus of jobs and businesses leaving Illinois. I will continue to ask your opinion on issues before I vote, so that I can represent you!
No More Taxes
I believe that we need to stop taxing and spending and work hard to find sustainable solutions to lower property taxes, attract, and retain businesses and grow the number of good jobs in Illinois.
Enact a 4- year property tax freeze while fighting to stop the Chicago Schools bailout and bring more state funding to our local schools to help lower property taxes
Fight Democrat efforts to institute a new tax on retirement income
Make government employee pension reform a top priority
Eliminate some of Illinois' 7,000 local units of government - the highest in the nation
End needless Springfield unfunded mandates that cause our property taxes to skyrocket
Consolidate Illinois school districts into unit districts, which will eliminate unneeded highly paid administrators without impacting classroom instruction
Oppose future Mike Madigan tax increases like his recent 32% state income tax increase
Support Pro-life Legislation
I believe strongly in protecting the sanctity of unborn lives and that all life, from conception to close, is precious. Right to life is very personal to my family and I. You can read more here about why this issue is so important to me.
Uphold the 2nd Amendment
I believe in the right to gun ownership afforded to us by our Constitution. I am a F.O.I.D cardholder and have a Concealed Carry Permit and will always advocate for protecting the 2nd Amendment.
Support Job Creation
I believe in encouraging economic growth through innovation in entrepreneurship, small business, and our core industries. With a strong history of working with and fostering growth for entrepreneurs and small business owners, I plan to encourage and support legislation that brings jobs and business to the State of Illinois and our District.
