Thank You for Visiting

February 21, 2012

Welcome to my website. I encourage you to learn more about me and my efforts to make Southern Illinois such a great place to raise our families.

As a former farmer and small business owner, I know that you have to live within a balanced budget that works. That’s why I have fought to create jobs and bring money back to Southern Illinois, helping our region become a more attractive place to do business. I also know that you cannot balance the budget by cutting jobs. That’s why I have fought the Governor’s plan to shut down major sources of employment here in Southern Illinois – like Choate Mental Health Center in Anna and Tamms Correctional Facility.

I hope you will take some time to get to know the issues of the campaign and join my campaign to bring jobs and businesses to Southern Illinois.
