On December 3, it was announced that State Senator Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) would be joining Governor-elect Pritzkers Job Creation and Economic Opportunity Committee, representing Southern Illinois as a new Administration prepares for the upcoming General Assembly.
Senator Fowler issued the following statement following the announcement:
It is a privilege to be a voice and advocate for economic development and job creation throughout Southern Illinois, and Im looking forward to bringing that perspective to the discussion as we transition under a new Administration, said Senator Fowler. Party lines dont have to dictate progress and working together, collaboratively, can bring about change if everyone comes to the table with an open mind. Moving forward, my priority will continue to be representing the people of my district to the best of my abilities and being a vocal advocate for the hardworking businesses and job creators of this state, both in my new role on this transition team and in the Senate as we enter into the 101st General Assembly.
