With the election behind us, a New Era of Government is upon us- one defined by credibility and responsibility, not corruption and political expediency. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible. But our work is not done.

Illinois has a lot of problems- the largest unfunded pension liability in the nation, structural budget deficits, a reputation for corruption, and inadequate gun laws that fail to keep our families safe- to name a few. Not one to sit on the sidelines, I have already begun to tackle these problems.

As I did during my time at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago, I will continue to serve our district with honor and passion, always putting your interests ahead of special interests.

Help us usher in the New Era of Government by getting involved today. Thank you for the privilege of representing you.
