Together we will make IL Shine
-ROPER FOR IL-
Putting My Experience
Christopher J. Roper is a United States Army Veteran, and former law enforcement officer. He was born, raised, and still lives in Central Illinois. He is a Christian family man with a loving wife, and 6 children, one of whom is currently serving in the Army. When he’s not studying/following politics, like he’s been doing since he was teenager, he enjoys hunting, fishing, singing, and gaming. He was raised on a dairy and crop farm, where he began learning the important life values that he still uses today. In the Army, Chris was taught many tools to succeed and win. He learned these key leadership values that are still ingrained in him to this day: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, personal courage
I began my career at an entry level position with Hardee's/Doro Inc. I very quickly worked my way up from the bottom into a position as a successful turnaround specialist. I was able to utilize skills I gained from my military experience to train/retrain. I assisted in marketing and policy/procedures, and was able to help stores who were not turning profits, to once again lead the way.
As a former law enforcement officer, I am trained to lead, help, and serve all people equally. I have dedicated my whole life to helping anyone and everyone I possibly can. I live daily with the injuries I sustained while serving our country and defending our constitution and values. I do not let those reminders deter me or to lose faith in God, our country, or our Constitution.
Illinois corruption is at an all time high. We The People are being attacked from all angles. We need someone who is trained in law enforcement, someone who is trained in military tactics, someone who is not fake, someone who is not a traditional/career politician, and someone who is not afraid to tackle the corruption head on. ENOUGH with the status quos who think they are better than us. We must stop placing traditional politicians in office. If they have been in office and we still have all the issues we currently have, they did not fight for We The People. Get the right person for the job. That person is Christopher J. Roper!
Below is a little about me/my beliefs... Illinois has been ABUSED way too long. We all know that the list of things that need to be changed, to help make Illinois shine, is MASSIVE. These are only a few that I will start on, right away. I am not a "Standard Issue" politician, or "Career" politician. I will not bore you with stats, and pointless babble, but I will talk honestly and transparently with you . I will FIGHT for our State, and our ILLINOIS FAMILY!
I will bring results.
When elected, I will...
-Lower taxes to stimulate growth.
-Expose and dispose of corruption with great fury.
-VOID the FOID, I support our Second Amendment.
-Streamline and clean up current programs, to stop the pocket lining schemes (some "programs" are being used as a laundering process).-Stop throwing money around, like candy at a parade.
-Bring the office of Governor back to Springfield.
-Force accountability and transparency.
-Allow accessibility to the Governor - allowing open communication.
-Put together a powerhouse team to make Illinois SHINE.
-Remove the hotline from the Chicago Mayor, that controls the Governor of Illinois. The Governor does not report to the Mayor, but rather, to the people of Illinois.
-I will ALWAYS know our government is... of the people, for the people and BY THE PEOPLE.
-I will Give power back to WE THE PEOPLE of Illinois!
