It's Time to Look Ahead ...
Hello, I'm Peter Breen, and I am proud to be the next State Representative to serve the people of the 48th District. Thank you for visiting my website.
Illinois machine politicians have consistently let down voters by side-stepping important issues, causing our state to spiral downward. Recovery is not impossible, but it will require serious and deliberate action by the representatives that voters send to Springfield.
A key benefit of my time serving on a municipal board is that we are required to balance our budget. Unlike the State, we cannot push our bills into the next fiscal year. Unlike Washington, we cannot simply print more money when we've spent too much. We are forced to find better ways to use our revenue and make sacrifices when necessary. Our state could benefit from the same kind of fiscal discipline.
The performance of our General Assembly is unacceptable. I know our state has greater potential. We've been blessed with resources and geography that should rank us at the top of the list in every major economic, education and service arena. This is the standard I am committed to.
Thank you for putting your trust in me to go to Springfield to be your voice in the General Assembly.
