Dekalb, IL – First-time candidate Jeff Keicher filed more than 1,100 signatures with the Illinois State Board of Election to kick off his candidacy for State Representative in the 70th district. Keicher is a small business owner and lifelong resident of Illinois with roots in Kane County who now lives with his wife (Karen) and children (Emma, Oliver & Ethan) in Sycamore.
“Today, I am filled with optimism and see a brilliant future for Illinois. We have rich and abundant agricultural farmland, wonderful educational institutions, great natural resources, and amazing people in our communities.” Keicher said. “It’s time to unleash our unlimited ability to be an economic powerhouse by making Illinois government accountable to the citizens of this state.”
Keicher is running on a very simple and straightforward platform that includes: protecting taxpayers resources, creating an environment for job growth and economic development, establishing a world-class education and workforce development system, restoring fiscal stability and balancing the budget without raising taxes. and rebuilding Illinois’ infrastructure.
“As I have walked door-to-door for the past three months, I have been overwhelmed by the support and encouragement from voters in every community in district on these core issues,” noted Keicher. “Our friends and neighbors are tired of a dysfunctional state government that has wracked up billions of dollars in debt, higher taxes, and more regulations. Illinoisans want our leader to engage in thoughtful dialogue and real solutions to fix our problems instead of more political infighting.”
Keicher plans to continue walking door-to-door and talking to voters in every community across the district to gage their opinion on key issues. For more information on Keicher’s campaign visit www.KeicherForRep.com.
