The Primary is Over - We Won! On to November!!

The results are in - we're moving on to November! Thanks to my opponent, Howard Solomon, for running a good, clean race. Between the two of us, we had the chance to talk to voters across the district and raise many good issues. Thanks to all the people who supported us with their votes, efforts, and checkbooks. Special thanks to Julie Rogers and Jackie Schmack for their efforts knocking doors and handling communication. And my most sincere thanks to my campaign manager, Randi Olson, for everything she's done and all the time and effort she's devoted to this race.
I look forward to working with all of you as we move forward and continue to spread our message throughout the district.

Thanks to everyone! Now the real work begins - getting our message out to the district. Stay tuned!

FCC to Repeal Net Neutrality

The FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, announced he plans to scrap net neutrality. It's expected to be approved along a party-line vote. I can't think of a better of example of how Republicans value corporate profits over individual rights.

Pritchard to Leave Legislature

August 1, 2017

Representative Robert Pritchard (R - IL 70) has announced that he will not be seeking re-election to the Illinois House of Representatives next fall.  Citing 14 years in Springfield as being long enough, Bob plans to devote more time to family and serving the community in new ways.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Representative Pritchard for his service to the district.  Even though we often disagree on policy and specific votes, I've always found Bob to be very approachable.  He seems to be at every event in the district, and always has time to talk to constituents.  I've found him responsive - always hearing what I have to say, and personally answering my emails.  In short, Bob has been an excellent representative.  I hope, given the chance, to be as accessible and responsive as Bob has been.

Thank you Bob, and best wishes for the future!
