I write to encourage others in our community to support Erik Jones for Congress. Erik was born and raised in downstate Illinois. He has broad experience in public service including serving as investigative counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight, the chief investigative counsel for U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce and as an assistant attorney general in the State of Illinois. In his work he’s investigated waste, fraud and abuse, and collaborated with legislators to implement solutions to combat corruption.
The issues he’s focusing on are important for all Illinoisans including access to healthcare and health insurance, and expansion of rural broadband internet. Erik is honest and willing to put the work in to ensure that our needs here at home are heard in Washington. Erik’s experience has prepared him to begin working for the citizens of Illinois on his first day in Congress. I believe he is the best candidate to serve our interests in the 13th District, and our best hope to beat Rodney Davis in the general election.
