The Platform

Bipartisan Work

Richard has been an educator for the last 16 years and he believes in working together to reach a common goal.  He will continue to work with people from all walks of life and will not let partisan politics stop our government from getting our work done. 

First Rate Education for All Students

Richard knows the value of education.  As a teacher, Richard knows that our schools need greater resources. Richard will fight to force the state to properly fund education, taking a critical step toward real property-tax relief. 

Lower the Tax Burden

We need to be careful stewards of our taxpayers.  Finding a way to support our work without overburdening our taxpayers is of utmost importance.  Richard opposes Springfield's tax increase and will work to cut property taxes for all homeowners and provide additional relief for seniors and veterans.
