Today, in the wake of Senator Dan Duffy’s announced retirement, Martin McLaughlin announced his candidacy for the 26th Illinois Senate District. McLaughlin is the Village President of Barrington Hills, a small businessman and a financial expert running to bring his common sense private sector experience to Springfield.
“It has been frustrating to watch Springfield grind to a halt because of an inability to accept needed spending reforms and enact a balanced budget. Meanwhile, here in my village, we’ve been able to work through our differences to cut spending and taxes. It can be done, but you need strong, experienced leadership to make it happen, and that’s why I’ve decided to run for State Senate,” said McLaughlin.
