Republican Martin McLaughlin brought eight successful years of experience as Barrington Hills village president when he entered the Illinois House in 2021. Now, he’s seeking a second term in the newly drawn House Dist. 52 and his thoughtful, measured approach to state government makes him the right person for the job.

With a background in investment management, McLaughlin is particularly well suited to help address the financial issues facing the state, and his tenure at the helm in Barrington Hills was marked by his success at providing needed services while keeping taxes low. He favors the traditional limited-government positions of his party, yet — on issues including education, crime, government spending and more — he remains thoughtful and independent in working out the details of legislation and examining problems facing the state.
