Thank you for visiting my blog.

Labor and working-class families have always been close to my heart.  I have served as a union steward for over 40 years.  Labor has impacted my life and livelihood by being good stewards in the community.  I believe in working families achieving the American Dream.  By doing so, we contribute to and build stronger communities.  

I look forward to communicating with you about issues important to the needs of our district and the county. Feel free to email me at [email protected] or call/text me at (815) 214-9734.  You can also connect with me on Facebook on my personal page or my County Board Facebook Page.

We are in unprecedented times, everyone is impacted by COVID-19.  I am concerned about all our families and small businesses in our community.  Mom and pop shops and stores are essential to our community and they have been sorely missed.  I look forward to hearing from you. Hopefully, I can host a Meet and Greet late in the summer.  In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.  We are all in this together.
