Chris DeMink, Candidate for State Representative, IL-74

Christopher DeMink is a retired IBEW Local 145 electrician of 32 years.  He has been a precinct committeeman in Mercer County for more than ten years.  He is a Black Hawk College graduate and spent eight years in the Navy Reserve as a SeaBee.  He and his wife, Jean, live in Sherrard and have two daughters, Jessica and Violet, and one son, Luke.

Chris is proud of his district and the people in it, but there is work to be done and opportunities to be found. He will work tirelessly for the people and be a voice for them.  The issues important to him are better education, more job opportunities, support for farmers, and a fair share of taxes back from the state. This will ensure the district receives much better infrastructure, i.e., better roads, better internet, and better quality of life. Chris has been endorsed by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, as well as by the Illinois Federation of Teachers, the Illinois AFL-CIO, and the Illinois Nurses Association.

Chris has raised three children in this area and worked in the local union for 30 plus years, so he knows what affects everyday life in this district. He will be bi-partisan in Springfield and do whatever takes to help the 74th District.

The people first, not a party.
