John Shimkus has served as the representative of the 15th District of Illinois since 1996 and he has no intentions of leaving office as he is running for re-election.
Shimkus has been working hard lately on the Safe Drinking Water Act as he is trying to make sure that rural Illinois areas are not forgotten about when it comes to clean drinkable water.
Shimkus says this is a two step process to get this program put through Washington. Step one is authorizing the program and laying out what it is intended to do, the second step is coming up with the necessary funding to make sure the program is a success.
Shimkus wants to continue to fight for the 15th District of Illinois, he shares why he should continue to be the voice of the 15th District.
Shimkus appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
