Phone: (618) 351-0365
Education: Bachelor's, Westminster College
Previous offices: Anna-Jonesboro School Board, Anna City Council
Qualifications: For nearly a decade I've worked in state government. Currently I am the regional administrator for the Illinois Department of Transportation, which employs more than 300 employees and has a $10 million annual operating budget. I've served on the Anna-Jonesboro school board and currently serve as a Anna City Commissioner. These experiences have shown me what government does well and it has also shown me where government is failing. I am ready and I have the energy that is needed to serve in the state senate.
Top issues: $30 billion budget deficit, $83 billion unfunded pension liability and corruption that continues to plague the State of Illinois.
