    YES, we are proud of his accomplishments for Illinois representing the 97th District. He takes the term “public servant” to new levels; a quote from Adam Kinzinger!!! He gets
    groceries for Seniors, hosts blood drives, worked with the Mobile Food Pantry to collect and distribute items to families and encourages people in business and shopping to wear masks. We cannot afford to lose him. He is essential to the community and needed for another term in Springfield.
