You want law enforcement to be held accountable on the state level?

You want to root out bad cops making it harder for those who serve and protect the innocent?

I guarantee, if I get nominated by the Libertarian party, you're going to see this happen.

If there is proof of a cop, on or off-duty abusing their authority in the state of Illinois, the money for the investigations won't come from the tax payer.

That funding will come right from their pension.

It's already state law if found guilty you lose your pension.

However, as an off-duty police officer it doesn't apply.

It will now apply when I get into office.

I'll also make sure we put police officers in areas where they can relate more to the neighborhoods they're patrolling to lessen claims of racial discrimination.

This protects civilians and law enforcement equally.

I can guarantee you one thing, if nominated to represent the Libertarian party and then if we win in 2018- Chicago's gang violence will come to an end!

It won't be because of national guard to patrol the streets while you give up your rights as if this is a 3rd world country.

Instead, legalization of Marijuana and the Decriminalization of other drugs, promotion of gun rights for self defense, lower taxation and more jobs.

Cost effective and feasible.

I wanted to answer some of the questions that were asked to me about the role of Illinois executive branch regarding education, pension and salaries.

When it comes to public school funding and the Pensions in Illinois, this comes from property taxes at the local level, the lottery and some state income tax coverage in the form of a General State Aid Grant.

Local school boards negotiate with the public teacher(s) through the IEA (Illinois Education Association) or CPS (Chicago Public Schools), for their salaries and benefits.

They do not pay into social security since they participate in TRS (Teacher Retirement System).

So, for anyone who has an issue with what teachers/principals make annually you'll have to take that up with your local government (city, town, village or borough) - not the State government.

I personally feel if the funding for public schools is not properly allocated to all the districts evenly, then ideally it's time to consider a Constitutional convention to return the power back to the local municipalities and Counties to fund their own pensions.

It's not fair for the Chicago tax payers to pay into the CPS (Chicago Public Schools) pensions and then having to pay into downstate school pensions. As it wouldn't be fair to ask those who live outside of Chicago to pay up for the underfunded CPS pensions.

It's time for the People to start holding their representatives on all levels of government accountable for how badly our education system has been managed.

The Illinois general assembly, BOTH Democrats & Republicans, chose to raise your taxes recently under the guise of wanting to "pay down the bills". Yet, here we are again, with the politicians wanting more from the taxpayer because last time, it "wasn't enough".

Madigan and Rauner are the ones who refuse to legalize Marijuana and decrease/cap the pay of all State government politicians to bring in more revenue to fund education and other programs.

They're holding us back with their incompetence, greed and division as a State to grow.

If you're tired of having your livelihood threatened by money hungry politicians, please consider this #VoteLibertarian #LiberateSpringfield #DewWhatsRight
