101st State Representative Candidate
What is the importance of an IL State Representative to your constituents in Champaign County?
An Illinois State Representative needs to listen to constituents, advocate on their behalf, and fight for the future of our state. We also must have a representative that champions rural and small community economic development, farm policy that protects the breadbasket of the heartland, and better access to quality healthcare. With my background in collaborative partnerships, I am uniquely qualified to do just that.
Why are you qualified to be in the Illinois House of Representatives?
As a mom and nonprofit and education professional, I’ve seen first hand the destruction of our state after a two year long budget impasse. My experiences working within my community, coupled with my background in public administration, will ensure the 101st district has a committed advocate in Springfield.
What is a key policy difference between you and your Opponent?
The key difference between me and my opponent is the fundamental role of government in our lives. While my opponent blames regulation for the downfall of our state, I see that there is power in making government work for working class families. We must tackle problems head-on with the belief that politicians are public servants charged with building a better government for our families.
Is there anything else you would like to say to an undecided voter in Champaign County?
For too long, the voters in Champaign County and the 101st district have fought along party lines. Right now, we need a representative that is committed to working with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to ensure a strong future for our working families. As your next state representative, I will ensure to put the needs of the district above party politics and fight for the future of Illinois.
