  • Veterans Issues
Excerpt: "I would like to bolster support for vocational rehabilitation and employment services. There are approximately 800,000+ veterans in Illinois, and as District 86's House Representative, I will work to ensure that the promises our Government made to Veterans, including health care, disability compensation, pensions and GI Bill benefits, are fulfilled."
  • Crime
Excerpt: "Crime is combated by Citzens, Local Police, County and State Police, however, as a Legislator, Ryan M. Alm promises to be tough on Crime! Candidate Ryan M. Alm will not vote or support any legislation that gives criminals advantages, while taking away personal rights of individuals and families."
  • No Red Light Cameras
Excerpt: "Many elected officials across Illinois have embraced red light cameras, purportedly as a safety tool. The claim is that the camera will make intersections safer by reducing accidents. However, this is not the case."
