We talk again today with Ben Stratemeyer of Centralia, who is looking at a run for 54th district State Senator in 2018. Stratemeyer says Illinois has got to get it’s financial house in order before being able to move forward with anything else.
And, Stratemeyer says he believes worker’s compensation is one big fix the state needs to take care of.
Stratemeyer is a CPA and he is also the Republican Party Chairman in Marion County. Stratemeyer is eyeing a run at the seat currently held by Kyle McCarter—as McCarter has stated in the past that he would not run for another term as he believes in term limits and was setting his own term limit.
