Welcome Message

Dear Friend,

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my legislative Web site. I have proudly served the 55th State Senate District in Springfield since 2003, representing the people living in parts or all of Champaign, Piatt, Douglas, Edgar, Coles, Clark, Cumberland, Shelby, Effingham, Crawford, Lawrence and Wabash Counties.

I encourage you to check my website regularly for information on how I am working for you in Springfield. In an effort to keep this site informative and helpful, I frequently provide updates on important legislation and state issues. This Web site is also a good resource to find information on local and state services, benefits and other opportunities available to Illinois residents.

Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions, opinions or concerns—I love hearing from you and enjoy receiving feedback! You can reach my Mattoon office at 217-235-6033 and my Springfield office at 217-782-6674. Or you can contact me through email at drighter@consolidated.net.
