Illinoisans deserve a fighter, not a coward. That's why I'm running for Governor and as Governor, I will ensure that we rebuild the state of Illinois thus making it once again a great state to raise our children and grandchildren.The journey to making Illinois a great state begins with a Governor willing to stand up and be transparent and willing to fight for hardworking Illinoisans, one who has been in your shoes. I will stand up for you as that person. I am a US. Army veteran, veteran Firefighter, Intermediate Paramedic and a strong willed, passionate individual that has been in your shoes. I will fight to rebuild the Illinois American Dream!
