The safety of Metro East communities is on the ballot this November. When it takes effect, Illinois Democrats’ radical new SAFE-T Act law will force the Madison and St. Clair County jails to release half of all their dangerous criminals currently being held pretrial, back onto our streets. This means that criminals responsible for crimes like armed robbery, drug trafficking, and murder would walk free while our families fear for their safety. This attack on our communities is unacceptable. My opponent has been silent on this issue. When I get to Springfield, I will fight to repeal the SAFE-T Act, and advocate for stricter enforcement of our laws so that our families can feel safe again.
