The job of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives is to represent the people. As a Realtor and Managing Broker since 2012, my job was to work with my clients and agents to ensure they were represented properly. In Real Estate, you work with people everyday that might not agree with you but we are required by law to do whatever is best for the client. Politicians have forgotten they are required to do whats best for the ALL constituents, not just their own party. Running small businesses my entire career, I understand what needs to be done and how important they are to our community. I will use my years of business to work across the aisle to get common sense legislation passed. We need a politician who is going to fight to get the 3rd District the federal resources we need. This is done by working together not against each other.
For decades, we have seen crime rising in the City of Chicago but politicians continue to do nothing to help. The 3rd District is unique because it has Chicago and the Suburbs together. Many feel there aren't many similarities with the district but crime is now something that both parts of the districts are struggling with and are tired of watching. In DuPage county we have seen what great leadership can do for policing. Sheriff Jim Mendrick and Bob Berlin are showing that you can rehabilitate while also enforcing the law. If we don't get crime under control in Chicago it will continue to spill to the suburbs. If Chicago falls, so does the suburbs. I am the only candidate backed by police and the only candidate willing to stand up for this cause.
As our Congressmen, it's important to lead by example and call out the hypocrisy on both sides of the aisle. As the only non-politician in this race, just like you, I have witnessed the grandstanding from politicians that many of us despise. Politicians are doing such a terrible job of actually educating their voters. When 5000 page legislation is getting passed, its the job of our Congressmen to tell us what the good and the bad of the bill is, to tell us how this will benefit or hurt the District. Many on both sides of the aisle will only base their opinion based on party lines, this needs to end. We also must start informing constituents what recourses are available to them. Often we see politicians grandstand on the issue but fail to mention the programs and recourses that are already in place to help. With me the 3rd District will be getting honesty and transparency.
