My Political Vision
Blue Collar Jobs Act
Illinois needs to unleash its small business spirit, entrepreneurial energy and risk-taking. We have the best workforce in the country. When we lift up job creators paired with our hardworking neighbors, there is not state that can match Illinois.
Small Business Regulation Reform

The effort to move Illinois to a clean energy future has taken a huge leap forward. There is still critically important work to do to balance affordability and reliability for Illinois consumers and business customers in the coming years.
Education is really important. Parents know that. Teachers live that. The State of Illinois has a constitutionally mandated role in supporting our children’s education. How that gets accomplished is up to legislators and how well they understand what parents and teachers need together.
