​​February 2, 2018

This week in Springfield, Gov. Bruce Rauner gave his annual 'State of the State' address. One of his 2018 priorities he discussed was proposing a balanced budget to the General Assembly. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to review all revenues and expenditures outlined in any budget proposal brought forth by the Governor.


As your state representative, I am committed to improving our current business climate. However, I do not accept that the only way to create jobs is by cutting wages and ending protections for workers in an effort to increase profits for large corporations - all at the expense of middle-class families. I believe the best way to create jobs is to promote policies to lift up the middle class while passing policies that help businesses grow and expand our economy.

The kindness of the men and women in blue was very apparent yesterday at police headquarters as they honored a young boy with special needs and made him an Officer for the Day. I was able to witness the huge smile on the young man's face as he saluted all the officers in attendance. Thank you Kate McMahon for organizing the day. It was heartwarming!
