I want to thank every single contributor, every single person who has donated time, resources, and their experiences to this campaign. Our End of Year financial report defied all expectations! It means a great deal to me, but it means more to the People of the 15th District.
We’re Fighting for the 15th because we know we deserve better!
Better wages, better healthcare, better schools, better infrastructure.
We need more opportunities for students as they graduate. We need more support and revenue for our small businesses, farmers, town and county governments. We need new industries, new innovation, and we need more of you to become involved in this growing movement to not only transform our district but our politics as well.
The reason I ask for your support is that I’ve not only cared about our common struggles but I’ve fought to change the status quo throughout my life.
I’ve also been a frugal politician that has run my campaign like a business. That’s what you should expect from your representative.
We’ve raised nearly $6,000 in just 6 months. That’s not a lot when compared to Rep. Shimkus’ special interest money, but it is more than our opponent in the primary has raised in a year.
We also have more cash on hand as well, because I spend only the money necessary to reach the citizens of this district. I also spend campaign monies at great Illinois union businesses that do amazing work every day.
One thing I will never do is loan our campaign any money. My primary opponent has loaned his campaign over $12,000. That’s nearly triple what he’s raised. We all make choices, but that’s just a bridge too far for me.
I would never want the hard working people who have contributed to our campaign to bear the weight of campaign debt.
Our team is working hard to reach workers, families, and citizens wherever they are because we care deeply about the issues that you care about.
Our communities have been left behind by both parties for far too long. We are working hard to change that course.
We offer a transformative approach to campaigning and policy that will improve the lives of the People of the 15th District. We’re doing this by listening to you, learning from your experiences and the amazing wealth of knowledge and wisdom that hasn’t been heard in Washington for too long.
I’ll stand up for you and be your voice as your representative.
Join us as we move this district and this region forward!
