I want to prove that you can get elected to state office without accepting huge amounts of money from special interest groups, corporation, corrupt businessmen, or the corrupt political parties that have given Illinois its sad reputation.

The amount of money involved in political campaigns makes elected officials loyal to the people that gave them money. When a candidate accepts large sums of money from corporations or special interest groups, you know where their loyalty is going to lie.

When there is a very good chance that two of our governors, one republican and one democrat, will be serving jail time for corruption, it is time for a change. When both governors had the support of their parties until they were caught, it is time to clean house. I want to influence change in our state government. I want to give the voters of my district a voice to influence change in our state, and clean house.
