I am disappointed in the policies sponsored and voted into law by the incumbent. Whether it be his co-sponsorship of HB3751 where it does clearly provide a pathway for noncitizens to be police officers over previous law, thus undermining citizen sovereignty and State independence. Or Democrat sponsored SB2323, which undermined local autonomy. Or him standing in support of litigation which subsequently damaged Tom DeVore’s lawsuit (where I am a plaintiff) that was aimed at removing Public Act 102-1116 (gun ban) and stopping the improper proceedings that the General Assembly currently practices. My dedication to representing this district will require me to retire from my current employment so that I can focus on the needs of our communities. I hope to talk to you on the campaign trail.
