It’s evident that Illinois has been going through a crisis. The problems are obvious and far-reaching, including a significant decrease in job opportunities, skyrocketing tuition rates, and state worker exploitation.

None of these problems were helped by Gov. Bruce Rauner, who gave us government gridlock and a budget that took over two years to pass through. With Avery Bourne, the 95th District’s current state representative, we got numerous present votes and apathy. It is clear we need a real change in local representation.

That is why I am voting for Dillon Clark for state representative. Having grown up in Hillsboro, Dillon understands the downstate Illinois experience. With Dillon Clark, you find an empathetic leader. He doesn’t just see these local issues in abstract terms — he understands the real human struggle behind these crises.

Through his prior work on the Montgomery County Board, Dillon has seen firsthand the long-term harm the Great Recession has done to Illinois. He knows that this state has suffered from a staggering loss of jobs, a rising opioid epidemic, a lack of meaningful investment, and inaccessible educational opportunities.

Dillon will work with constituents to create effective solutions to these complex problems. He will listen to and care about what you have to say. Instead of turning away or trivializing these problems, Dillon is willing and ready to roll up his sleeves to address these issues head-on.

That is why I am confident Dillon Clark will make an incredible state representative for the 95th District of Illinois.
