Rep. Bradley Fritts Announces Campaign to Seek Re-election for House District 74

DIXON- Following his 2nd Annual Farm Fest Fundraiser, State Representative Bradley Fritts (R-Dixon) released the following statement regarding his bid for re-election in Illinois House District 74:

“Growing up in rural Illinois I always heard the same phrase repeated to me. Adults telling me to “grow up, get an education, and get out of Illinois”. Well, as a fourth-generation family farmer, throwing in the towel and walking away isn’t in my blood. I love the state of Illinois and the incredible community we have built in District 74. Instead of walking away, I chose to stay here, roll up my sleeves, and get to work.”

“At 22 years old, I was the youngest representative ever elected to the Illinois General Assembly. In my first term, I passed four bills through the Illinois House, all of which were local initiates brought to me by you, the people of District 74.” 

“This summer, I spent my time touring the district. I made over 38 stops on my summer tour, speaking with hundreds of district residents, local officials, job creators, nonprofit leaders, and constituents in need of assistance.”

“I am proud of the work we have accomplished in my first term, but there is always more work to be done. Rural Illinois is feeling the effects of urban legislators who have continued to ignore our part of the state over many years. Crumbling infrastructure, lack of access to medical care, rising crime, and desperate need for economic development are just a few of the reasons why I am running for re-election.” 

“I am honored to serve my constituents by focusing on real, bipartisan solutions, and I look forward to receiving your vote on March 19th.”
