Why I am Running

Dear Neighbor,

I often think about the potential our state has to transform its challenges into opportunities, and I honestly have hope for the future of Illinois. This hope does not stem from a faith in our local government, but from a faith in you—the people of Illinois.

Our state’s history is rich with exceptional men and women who worked hard and took risks to create a better life for their children and their children’s children. Sadly, this dream for a better future is under attack by special interests and self-serving politicians who are decimating our state.

As a proud husband and father of four daughters, I understand what it means to work hard to create this better life for our future, and it saddens me to see this opportunity being taken from neighbors in this state.

As a family business owner, I also understand the challenges businesses face to stay afloat. While Ozinga has been privileged to prosper in Illinois for 91 years, we’ve sadly had coworkers, customers and community members succumb to these challenges—and that’s not a future I want to be a part of.

Unfortunately, prosperity is not guaranteed. Instead, it must be fought for and defended by ‘we the people’, so we can pass the baton to the next generation.

I am running the race for state representative in order to carry the torch for you and your loved ones. I promise to fight corruption, promote economic liberty, and restore moral leadership to our state. I want you and your family to have an equal opportunity to prosper and achieve the American dream, right here in Illinois, for generations to come.

I believe in the power of faith, family, and freedom. I believe in your God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But most importantly, I believe in you!
