It's been a tough time for our state and our nation, with the issues that divide us seeming greater than the ones that unite us.
Now, more than ever, I am proud to be a bipartisan legislator and a voice for everyone in the 29th District. My focus is on the issues that matter most to the people of our district, the ones that affect our quality of life, our safety, our tax dollars, and the most vulnerable members of our communities.
Join me! Together we can do what's right for the 29th District and Illinois."
Julie on the Issues
Julie is the sponsor of a constitutional amendment for fair maps and redistricting. Instead of politicians choosing their districts and voters, the public should have the right to choose the people who represent them. Julie is working with a bipartisan coalition to get the Fair Map Amendment passed and bring credibility back to our state government.
Julie is a staunch and consistent proponent of strong and well-enforced gun safety laws. She is proud to have received an “F” rating from the NRA and has never voted in favor of any pro-firearm legislation. She has introduced legislation to ban trigger modification devices, bump stocks, and assault weapons in response to the many tragic shootings in recent years.
Mental health parity laws are supposed to require health insurers to cover mental health and substance abuse treatment for children. However, mental disability is still regarded differently from physical disability by some social services. Julie wants to remove barriers to receiving adequate mental health care.
