This website is about change and making things better. We need to focus on what’s important to our communities: jobs, the economy, energy, agriculture, quality education, public safety and the most vulnerable. I want to be your voice and ask for your thoughts and concerns. What are your issues? I look forward to hearing from you as we work together to improve Illinois. You may contact me through the email address shown here in this website. 

Government should be an interactive process and I encourage your input. After all, this is your government. I hope you will find this website a useful tool in helping me to serve you better. Please note that tax dollars were not used to bring you this website.
