AFP Welcomes New Illinois State Director David From

December 12, 2011 J

Grassroots activists and concerned citizens make Illinois a stronger, freer, and more prosperous state. Entering the new year, their work will be all the more important as we fight to reduce regulations, lower taxes, and cut government spending in the halls of Springfield, IL and Washington, DC.

David will be working hard to give you a voice in government through grassroots advocacy.

A Wheaton College (IL) graduate, David has worked throughout the state running campaigns for federal and state office, burning shoe leather in the halls of the state legislature, and meeting citizens across the state. His previous work includes work for Rep. Adam Kinzinger, former Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert and in the Office of the Governor.
