RED BUD -- Republican David Friess recently announced his reelection campaign for state representative of the new 115th District.

"Since my election in 2020, I have worked every day to fight the far-left agenda of Gov. Pritzker and the Democratic majority in Springfield," Friess said.

"I am proud to serve the interests of the hardworking families and small businesses of our district. Together, we are fighting to defend the 2nd Amendment, protect the sanctity of life, and working to lower the tax burden on southern Illinois families."

This past legislative session, Friess passed an amendment to the Kaskaskia Regional Port District Act, expanding federal and state funding opportunities for one of the district's major waterways.

Friess was first elected as a state representative in 2020 as a conservative Republican leader who embodies Southern Illinois' values. He and his wife, Miki, live in Red Bud with their two children. David is an Air Force veteran and works as an attorney.

The new 115th District includes all or part of Jackson, Monroe, Perry, Randolph, St. Clair, and Washington counties.
