Illinois policy makers treat hard-working taxpayers like a bottomless piggy bank. The ever rising income and property taxes combined with new state taxes on gasoline and groceries is placing a toll on resident’s ability to afford their own lives and pursue their dreams.

Our communities are amazing places to build lives and businesses, but out of control government spending is starting to erode our potential. As a single state representative, I will not have the power to single handedly lower our taxes, but I will serve as a strong voice for fiscal discipline, balanced budgets and against unnecessary taxes. I’ll be the leading advocate in the general assembly for repeal of the regressive gasoline and grocery taxes that hit lower income and working people the hardest.
