John is a father, an activist, and a community organizer that was born and raised in Springfield. With a union organizer as a father, John has always had a strong passion for labor issues and a society that is equitable for all its citizens. He believes that Black and Brown Lives Matter, and until we can honestly say America offers equal opportunity to all of its residents, dismantling the systemic racism that has plagued our country is among the most important issues we face today.
Too long have we lived in a country that works for the few rather than the many, so John will be running a campaign free of corporate funding. He feels that the residents of his district deserve to be represented by someone who refuses to be beholden to the agenda of the upper class, they deserve a Representative that listens to their needs and concerns, and works for the best interests of their constituents at every turn.
John has often been seen organizing and leading rallies across central Illinois, but he says that we have to do more than take to the streets and scream for change, we need to elect people who are going to fight for those changes in the Capitol.
John needs your contribution to help give a voice back to the people of the 96th District.
