MARION, Ill. – Today, Steve Webb was slated to run as the Democratic candidate for Illinois State Senator in the 59th District currently held by Republican Senator Dale Fowler. Webb, an experienced school administrator and certified law enforcement officer, hopes to use his career expertise and deep roots in the community to bring a fresh perspective to the legislature.

“As a lifelong resident of the 59th district, as a school resource officer with a background in education and law enforcement, I feel that I bring a unique set of qualifications to address the needs of our community and the State of Illinois,” said Steve Webb. “We have real challenges ahead and we need someone in Springfield who will fight for our schools and who cares more about people than personal gain.”
