  In President Obama’s farewell address last year, he said “If you're disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself…. ” 

  I want to be your voice in the General Assembly. I believe that many of our current batch of politicians have forgotten who they represent and why they are in Springfield—and they have been there too long. 

As your Representative, I want to be in constant contact with you so that I can at any point in time know the pulse of the district on any issue because I want to be your voice. I have a vision of an APP that does just that. 

If there is a topic that I haven’t covered on this website and you would like to know my opinion, please contact me on my mobile at 773-828-9568 or I want to be your voice and I truly care what you think. If elected, you can always contact me via my cell phone or email, and you will receive a response. I won’t be like the current politicians where they bombard your mailbox come election time, but you don’t hear from them any other time of the year. I hope to create a two-way dialogue with you every day of the year.
