Family-supporting jobs are the backbone of a community and family. Will County, of which our 86th District is comprised, has been fortunate to have had tremendous growth and job creation over the past several years, largely ahead of other areas of the state. We must keep our district and our state working.

I support a fair and impartial arbitration system for workers and measures that bring jobs that will support families to our state.

I continue to stress the need and work for new legislation that will help energy producers create and retain jobs in Illinois.
