Can the average person, who understands the needs of his fellow neighbors, get elected? I am on a mission to try. Even as we approach the primary election, I have been running this campaign without the support of big money. I do this because I want to represent the people of my district. I think the average person has been forgotten and overlooked. Illinois is going in the wrong direction and it’s time for a change! We continue to vote in politician after politician and this has not worked. We need to take back leadership of the House. Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, we need to come together to fix the basic problems in Southern Illinois. I humbly ask for your vote as the next Illinois District 118 State Representative.

I am not a professional politician and have never before ran for or held an elected office. I am running because I feel that the state has been so badly mismanaged that it is time for the voice of the citizens of Southern Illinois to be heard. I have absolutely no ties to special interest groups and will represent the needs and welfare of the citizens of my district. I pledge to serve my district faithfully and attend to the needs of the citizens of the 118th district with kindness and understanding.
