For too long, our parties have failed to work together, and any hope of economic
progress has been stalled. Like the people of the 91st District, Mark understands that to get anything done, we need increased communication between Democrats and Republicans and the local, state, and federal levels.
As Mayor, Mark has a proven record of leadership and the know-how to get both parties communicating to move our state forward. Mark’s mission is clear: to achieve fiscal responsibility, promote positive ethical reforms to clean up our state and improve the quality of life for Illinoisans.
Springfield politicians spend more time arguing or making backroom deals, rather than listening and increasing transparency. As a representative, Mark will always work with anyone willing to put politics aside for the betterment of our state.
