ALTON, IL – Republican Amy Elik announced her campaign for the 111th District of the Illinois House of Representatives today.
“As a CPA and auditor with over two decades of experience, I served as a trusted financial advisor on behalf of my clients,” said Elik. “Given Illinois’ poor fiscal condition, we need people who can audit financial records, ask tough questions, and push for fiscally-responsible solutions that do not additionally burden taxpayers.”
In the last legislative session, the current representative broke her promise of stopping wasteful spending. In fact, the only promise she kept was her desire to increase her salary – something she accomplished in the last days of the legislative session.
“As State Representative, I will advance the needs and priorities of this district, not those of Chicago and Speaker Madigan. I’ve spent my life working alongside members of this community to support our values, and I’ll continue to do that in Springfield.”
Amy serves as a Foster Township Trustee and previously served as a school board member with St. Mary’s Catholic School in Alton. She is a champion of our Second Amendment rights and lifelong defender of the unborn. Amy and her husband, Don, are proud parents of two children.
The 111th is a metro east district in Illinois that contains all or part of Alton, Bethalto, East Alton, Edwardsville, Elsah, Godfrey, Granite City, Hartford, Madison, Pontoon Beach, Roxana, South Roxana, and Wood River.
In the 2018 election, the Republican candidate lost by 356 votes, making the 111th one of the most competitive districts in the state.
