Babcock offers history of fiscal responsibility to voters
A lifelong House District 111 resident, Republican candidate Mike Babcock presents a positive record of fiscal responsibility to the voters.
As a Wood River Township supervisor, Babcock cut the budget while avoiding tax increases during six of the last seven years in order to ensure budget surpluses.
Babcock's dedication to his community includes serving on the Bethalto Police Pension, Riverbend Youth on Fire and Operation Thanksgiving Blessing boards. He also served as president during his four years on the board of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Services East Side.
As a small business owner and dedicated husband and father, Babcock understands the issues that affect businesses and families of Illinois. With more than 20 years in the insurance and financial industry, he is acutely aware of the hard times and the heartaches that affect the families in his district.
Babcock's campaign platform is based on honesty, integrity, hard work and transparency in government. He plans to work to reduce government spending and make the changes needed at the state level to make Illinois more business-friendly. He believes in serving the people of the district and the state, honoring their varied interests while steering Illinois back to a path of prosperity and promise.
