2023 Legislative & Community Survey

February 2023

Dear Neighbor,


I hope you and your loved ones have been off to a great start in 2023! The new year brings the new 103rd General Assembly, and I am honored to continue being your voice in Springfield.


To truly represent you, I need to know what you care about and how you would like me to work on your behalf. To that end, I would greatly appreciate your taking the time to complete our 41st District Legislative and Community Survey.


Your responses on past surveys directly affected legislation and policy in Springfield. Because of your voice, we provided more funding for our schools and to those with developmental disabilities; we saved for our future and lowered fees and taxes for working families.


There is always more work to be done. With your help and input, I look forward to working together to build a stronger community and a better Illinois.
