Barrington Hills Village President Martin McLaughlin is running for the 26th District Illinois Senate seat that will be vacant following state Sen. Dan Duffy’s decision not to seek re-election in 2016.
McLaughlin, the owner and manager of a registered investment advisory firm, characterizes himself as an independent Republican.
“I don’t see the state’s problems as being Republican problems or Democrat problems, it’s a business problem of not paying our bills,” McLaughlin said. “People like me who are outside of the system need to be involved to get reform passed.”
