Over the last two months I have had a lot of individuals encourage me to run for the 65th IL State Representative seat. While I am humbled and honored that so many have asked, I have no intention of running for higher office in the near future. My heart and passion remains at Kane County.
Like most, I was shocked to hear that State Representative Tim Schmitz was retiring. I have long considered Tim a friend, and have admired his hard work for the residents of Illinois. While Illinois needs a strong fiscally conservative individual fighting for reason among a sea of insanity currently enveloping the State House, that conservative simply is not me. My family is far too young to spend so much time away from them, and I feel there is still so much to do here in Kane.
