State House hopeful Kasiar strongly supports term limits to battle corruption
Jason Kasiar, a Republican from Eldorado who is running for the District 118 seat in the state House, said he wants to make Illinois a better place for residents by stopping corrupt career politicians.
"Career politicians have held our state back for too long,” Kaiser said. “It's time for a new perspective in Springfield and it's time to get our state working again. I've been a business owner in Southern Illinois for over 20 years, and unlike my opponent, incumbent [Brandon] Phelps, I support term limits. Being a representative is not a job, it's a service. I'm ready to serve Southern Illinois and stand up to anyone, regardless of party, to make sure our voice is heard."
Kasiar owns and operates Beck’s Drug Store. For the last four generations, his relatives have been born and raised in Eldorado. He said he understands the working-class people of his district.
“Our state faces a lot of problems, problems that have been created by career Chicago politicians like (House Speaker) Mike Madigan and those who support and vote to keep him in power,” Kasiar said. “Career politicians see being your representative as a job instead of the service it’s intended to be.”
