Professionally, I have more than 25 years of experience working in manufacturing and engineering and dealing with regulations and policies. I have also been active in the community, serving on the Naperville Fair Housing Commission and as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, Feed My Starving Children, and as an ESL tutor.
I was first elected to the Illinois State Senate in 2018 and have spent the last three and a half years crafting and championing legislation that matters to my constituents. Among my proudest accomplishments are the passage of two laws which were brought to me by constituents: for instance, Alex’s Law gives us more opportunities to save the lives of those suffering from substance use disorders. I was also thrilled to sponsor a measure that requires insurers to cover important tests for people with or at risk of developing diabetes, which leads to better treatment outcomes for these individuals.
One of the reasons I originally ran for State Senate was that Springfield was broken. Bills were going unpaid and the interest was growing to a staggering amount. The state was at near-junk bond rating. The pension crisis was looming. But in the last four years we’ve started to turn that around. It took over three years but in March of this year, the state paid the final amount of the bill backlog that had at one point reached about $16 billion. We’ve had six successive credit upgrades. And we are continuing to work on creating a sensible plan that supports the pension promises we’ve made without worsening the problem for all tax-payers. The fiscally responsible path we’ve charted in the last three and a half years has started to turn around the financial outlook for Illinois. That financial outlook impacts everything in our lives - home values, taxes, attracting to Illinois businesses that provide good jobs for our residents - and I am deeply committed to continuing this work.
I hope to be a leader in bringing new sources and increasing our supply of clean energy to Illinois and continuing to chart a fiscally responsible path forward for Illinois. Furthermore, I am 100% committed to ensuring that abortion access remains safe and legal in Illinois. I am also excited to continue to chart a fiscally responsible and sustainable future for Illinois.
