Katie Stuart is not a politician. Katie is a wife, mother of two, and educator who is fed up with the political gridlock in Springfield.
As a math instructor at SIUe, Katie shows students how to solve complex problems every day. As our State Representative, she will bring the same skills to Springfield and review the state budget line-by-line to eliminate waste while protecting vital services we depend on.
Katie will be a full time Representative, working to support local homeowners and businesses while opposing tax increases on the middle class.
Katie will lead by example. She will sponsor legislation requiring voters to approve any salary increase for politicians, making it more difficult for lawmakers to raise their own salaries.
Katie will support a budget that protects middle-class families. She will fight for funding for education, cancer screenings, programs for children with disabilities, and meals and in-home medical care for elderly residents.
