Welcome to my new legislative website. I am proud to serve as the State Senator from Illinois' 31st District, representing much of Central and Northern Lake County. I hope you find this site useful in keeping up-to-date with what is happening both in Lake County and in Springfield.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office with questions or ideas on ways I can better serve you in Springfield.
