Lewis calls for bipartisan support for term limits
Seth Lewis, candidate for a state Senate seat from District 23, recently appealed to members of both parties to support term limits in Springfield, calling for a united effort to bring fairness to state government.
“(House Speaker Mike) Madigan and (Senate President John) Cullerton have a combined 80 plus years of serving in the House and Senate in Illinois,” Lewis noted. “Politicians like them have drawn their own maps to serve themselves and denied voters the opportunity to vote on reforms like term limits.”
Lewis, a resident of Bartlett who ran unopposed in the March Republican primary, has previously campaigned for improving, investing and increasing responsibility: stabilizing Illinois’ finances; empowering Springfield to better serve and attract business, and raising the bar on transparency and accountability.
“We need term limits to erode the power of the corrupt class of politicians in Springfield,” Lewis said. “I am calling on Republicans and Democrats to come together in support of term limits on state legislators. I ask my opponent, Senator Tom Cullerton, to reject the Cullerton dynasty and support term limits.”
Lewis brings a business background to his platform, having earned his degree in industrial engineering, starting his career at Culligan International, serving in an executive capacity and additionally gaining experience in the insurance industry. Illinois’ business atmosphere served as Lewis’ main impetus in deciding to run for office.
