Your Values. Your Voice.
I first moved to the Chicago suburbs to attend Wheaton College, but now, nearly 20 years later, there isn’t another place I could imagine calling home. The people of the 14th District are hardworking, honest Americans that want Congress to do its job, get the government out of the way of their success, and ensure that the most vulnerable among us are taken care of.
I don’t think this is too much to ask of our Representative in Congress, however, the reality is that the results we need from Washington are not making their way back home to Illinois. That’s why I think it’s time for a change, and why I’m applying for the job to serve you in Congress. We need a Representative that knows and shares our values and who is willing to be a voice for all the constituents of the 14th District—not the voice of far-left progressives and their coastal special interests. In Congress, I will never forget that I am there fighting for YOU, your values, and to make your voice heard on the issues that you care the most about.
Standing up to the Swamp
Press conferences, hyperbole, and propaganda-like political rhetoric don’t serve or better the lives of any of the Illinoisans in our District. Instead, they solely serve the career politicians who use them to mislead their constituents. I’m sick of career politicians promising to get elected and then not delivering on any of those promises: all the while ignoring the people they were elected to serve.
Having the privilege to represent one’s neighbors as an elected official was always supposed to be about public service, not a new career path. For far too many career politicians, the office they hold is simply a rung on the ladder as they climb the ranks, further enriching themselves and their friends in the Swamp. I will never forget why I’m in Congress, whom I am fighting for, and where I came from—that I can promise you.
President Trump has done a lot in terms of shaking up the Swamp, but he needs a partner in Congress who will do their part as well. It is time that we pass term limits on members of Congress and make sure that career politicians have to find a new job, instead of ineffectively representing their constituents for decades on end. Additionally, we need to enact meaningful congressional ethics reform to shine some light on the Swamp and root out those who are only in office to serve themselves.
