What's happening...

Hello, and welcome to my website.  I'm working for you everyday and trying to keep you up to speed on what is happening.  We're updating the website with links to news stories I think you'll want to read and we're putting together e-newsletters with information about where we are on issues you've said you care most about.

One thing I wanted to be sure to share with you is an event I host every year.  My annual golf outing is coming up on June 20th.  Click here to see the information and if you're interested in participating, please call my staff at 618-253-4189.

We're working on our next edition of the e-newsletter.  It's been a while since we've sent one and I think it's time.  So many of you have expressed interest in what's happening on key legislation... this is a great way to get that information to you.  If you haven't already, sign up to get these updates here.

I'm updating Facebook regularly, too.  You can like my page by clicking here.

I think it's great this site is working the way it's supposed to, as an open form of communication between constituents and an elected official. Keep it up! Write to me through the contact form. Tell your friends about the information you find helpful here. Let them know that I do my best to answer each and every email I get.

To new site visitors... welcome! You'll find up-to-date stories in our News section from local and statewide news sources. In the Links section, we've provided great links to other websites we think you'll find helpful, including Illinois state agencies, local city and county offices, and district-wide tourist attractions.

I thank you for your support and look forward to continuing my efforts on your behalf.
