Current and Former Area Legislators Endorse Tim Butler

State Representative Tim Butler (R-Springfield), running in the 95th District, announced today that he has secured the endorsement of current and former legislators who have served this area of the state and live in the counties of the 95th District. Included in the endorsement are the five legislators from Sangamon County who have served with Butler during his four terms: current State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield), current State Representative Sandy Hamilton (R-Springfield), and former legislators Raymond Poe, Sara Wojcicki Jimenez, and Mike Murphy. “I am honored by the support of the current and former legislators from our area,” said Butler. “It means so much when folks who have done this job day-in and day-out give their support to someone in the same position. I have worked with every one of these legislators throughout the years and I truly appreciate that they would publicly support my reelection.” “Tim Butler has been great to work with, even before he was in the House,” said former Representative Raymond Poe. “Tim knows how to advocate for the people. He knows the importance of hard work. He knows that being an effective legislator means you show up in the district and work on whatever issue or concern is presented. Tim also has a depth of knowledge across many issues such as agriculture and education that makes him the perfect voice for our conservative Central Illinois values.” “Tim Butler and I have worked side-by-side for the past several years to make Illinois a better state and I wholeheartedly endorse him in the 95th District,” said Representative Avery Bourne (R-Morrisonville). “There really is no other choice in this race. Tim strongly maintains his conservative values on issues such as life and the Second Amendment, but he also brings to the Capitol the ability to govern and get things done for those he represents.” Current area legislators endorsing Tim Butler include: State Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer, State Representative Avery Bourne, State Senator Steve McClure, State Senator Sally Turner, and State Representative Sandy Hamilton. Former area legislators endorsing Tim Butler include: Irv Smith, Karen Hasara, Duane Noland, Raymond Poe, Larry Bomke, Adam Brown, and Wayne Rosenthal. State Representative Tim Butler is running in the 95th Illinois House District which covers parts of Sangamon, Christian, and Macon counties. Butler, an Assistant Republican Leader, is serving his fourth term in the General Assembly and is a leading voice on election integrity, redistricting, infrastructure, and energy issues. Butler and his wife Wendy have lived in Springfield since 1998, proudly residing on the Northend of the Capital City.
