I want to say a special "Thank You" to all of the hard-working volunteers who helped me win on Nov. 6. Whether you were college students or seniors, nurses or teachers; from labor or business; from Carroll, Henry, Whiteside or Rock Island county -- you put your time and energy into helping my campaign and I will never forget that.

Your votes -- and your voices -- encourage me as I prepare for a new term in the Illinois State Senate. Your votes -- and your voices -- encourage me to continue my commitment to effective representation of your views during the debates ahead in Springfield.

We face challenges and opportunities in the New Year ahead. Here in the district, we face issues in economic development, education and health care throughout this region.

But whatever issues and votes that face me in the next term, having your vote of confidence as I move forward is the best vote I can possibly have. I am very grateful for that, and for the chance to continue to earn that trust and confidence, and I look forward to my new term in the Illinois State Senate. Happy Holidays to each and every one of you.

State Sen. Mike Jacobs,
D-East Moline
