According to a release from his office, Fowler will be representing Southern Illinois and that party lines should not matter when it comes to creating and promoting employment in Illinois.

Fowler is a Republican and Governor-elect J. B. Pritzker is a Democrat.

“Party lines don’t have to dictate progress and working together, collaboratively, can bring about change if everyone comes to the table with an open mind. Moving forward, my priority will continue to be representing the people of my district to the best of my abilities and being a vocal advocate for the hardworking businesses and job creators of this state, both in my new role on this transition team and in the Senate as we enter into the 101st General Assembly.”
