A warm welcome to my official legislative website. Thank you for visiting. I hope that this site provides you with useful and substantive information about myself, the 3rd district and how I am working to make your voices heard and represent you in Springfield.
As we embark upon the 98th General Assembly, I am excited and hopeful for the great opportunities ahead for improving our State through innovative legislation. With such significant issues like pension reform, marriage equality and concealed carry being debated, I know this is going to be a landmark session in the Illinois Senate. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure we make sound, prudent decisions in the best interest of state citizens. I am committed to keeping my site updated and sharing valuable, current information with you - so please visit often.
I always enjoy hearing back from my constituents and listening to your input. Your feedback is invaluable to me and helps me to best serve you. If have any questions, concerns or ideas, never hesitate to contact me. I hold periodic townhall meetings, roundtables and satellite office hours, so do not forget to check the Constituent Services section of my Web site to stay in the loop regarding upcoming events.
