A Beecher City resident, who co-owns and operates Longhorn Buildings, is making a run for state representative.
“I believe there comes a time when regular folks need to step up,” Wilhour said. “I’m running so we can create jobs, cut taxes, enact term limits, and protect our values. Never before has there been such a stark contrast in priorities between the politicians and the hard-working Illinoisans who they supposedly work for, that must change.”
Wilhour said he wants to see the recent income tax hike rolled back, improve the state’s business climate, protect conservative values and eliminate legislator pensions, among other things.
He and his wife, Amber, have three children. He is a U.S. Army veteran and a former member of the Fayette County Board.
