I stand for...
I grew up in a small town near the Mississippi River. I learned a lot growing up in western Illinois--the value of community, the responsibility to take care of our own, and the importance of a hard day’s work. That is what has made me the husband and father that I am today.
When I went to work for Congressman Lane Evans, I learned about the value of public service. He taught me that government, when it works correctly, is supposed to help people. It’s supposed to make people’s lives better. When I go to make a decision on a piece of legislation, I always stop and ask: Will this make life better for the families of my district? Will this put people back to work? Will this make sure that kids and seniors are taken care of? Will this make sure that our veterans get the assistance they’ve earned? Will this help emergency responders keep our communities safe?
That is what has made me the legislator that I am. Every action I take as your representative is guided by those questions and by the community that I answer to.
