“It is with a heart full of gratitude to the people of Kendall, Grundy, LaSalle and Will Counties that I announce my resignation from the Illinois House of Representatives today. It has been the greatest honor of my career to serve our community in the General Assembly the past three years. I would like to thank everyone who gave me their trust and their support throughout my incredible experience as a legislator. I would like to particularly thank Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Randy Hultgren, Senator Sue Rezin and all local officials for their partnership and support. I enjoyed working with them on outreach events in the community.
I have accepted a new position as Executive Assistant to the Director of the Illinois Department of Corrections. My new role will enable me to continue serving the people of Illinois by utilizing my law enforcement experience and my legislative accomplishments in the area of criminal justice reform to help make the state’s correctional system more efficient and accountable. This is a big task, and one that will allow me to make a positive impact in the lives of families all across the state. I thank my constituents for their support and look forward to serving you in my new position with the Department of Corrections.”
