The Issues

Fire House Speaker Mike Madigan

In Illinois, we have rule of one: House Speaker Mike Madigan. Through a complex web of corruption, patronage and special interest cash, Madigan has tightened his grip on power in Illinois.

Balance the Budget

The Illinois Constitution mandates the General Assembly to pass a budget with spending that doesn’t exceed revenues – a balanced budget. Unfortunately, Illinois has not had a balanced budget since 2001. For the past 15 years, politicians in Springfield have borrowed money, dipped into pension funds, underfunded schools, and raised new taxes and fees to…

Stop Tax Hikes

Politicians have recklessly spent our hard-earned tax dollars for decades. Property taxes are spiraling out of control and income taxes are on the verge of going up thanks to the carelessness of the politicians in Springfield.

Enact Fair Maps

Elections should not be preordained. Voters should have a choice when they show up to the polls.  Unfortunately, our current system allows politicians to draw the lines and select the constituents they “represent” in Springfield. Partisan consideration in legislative map-drawing disenfranchises many Illinoisans from electing someone who shares their values and maximizes House Speaker Mike…

Defend the 2nd Amendment

The 2nd Amendment isn’t just about hunting and trap shooting. It’s about America’s first freedom – the inalienable right to self defense. The Founding Fathers enshrined the right to keep and bear arms in our Constitution because they knew a well-armed citizenry would be the last and most reliable line of defense of our lives,…

Support Agriculture

Agriculture is the backbone of Illinois’ economy. Whether it’s a John Deere dealership, a local feed store or a family farm, agriculture touches many sectors of Illinois’ economy. It creates tens of thousands of jobs, particularly in our farming communities such as Herscher, St. Anne and many more. Lindsay is a strong supporter of agriculture…
