Your Voice Matters

There are many policy issues that legislators must consider each year that impact veterans. I would be honored to hear from local veterans and active military personnel about the challenges you and your families are facing as well as the things the state is doing well and not so well. I will use your input to help guide my decisions and work toward improving the lives of Illinois Veterans. 

Your voices are important in shaping policy in a manner that benefits all veterans in Illinois. If you are a veteran or active military personnel, please take a minute to add your voice to the discussion by sharing what’s on your mind and what more the State of Illinois can do to support you.
