Campaign themes

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "It’s no secret that unemployment rates in Illinois and across the country have skyrocketed. A little over 10% of the State’s population is out of work, struggling to find a meaningful source of income in order to provide for their families. High unemployment means fewer dollars re-invested in our economy."
