Kudos to all the central Illinois individuals and groups that come to the State Capitol and talk with me and other state officials about the issues important to you!

On May 3, I welcomed more than 50 residents from the 44th Senate District to the Springfield as part of my fifth annual “44th District Day.” Three other members of the Senate Republican Leadership Team also talked with District Day participants at a lunch at the State House Inn, located north of the Capitol. Assistant Senate Republican Leader Dave Luechtefeld of Okawville talked about education reform; Deputy Senate Republican Leader Dale Righter of Mattoon talked about the redistricting process; and Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont talked about budget negotiations.

Lilly Brooks, a sophomore at Normal Community West High School, served as a legislative page for me on May 4. She is the daughter of Brad and Kathy Brooks of Hudson.
