Keith Matune is the clear and only conservative choice for state representative of the 81st District. He has displayed integrity in all aspects of his life as a husband, father and dedicated public servant as a successful schoolteacher who was selected as an Illinois Teacher of the Year, Illinois Coach of the Year and is currently serving his community as a school board member. Keith will work for transparency and accountability in Springfield, cut taxes, and defend conservative family values. Please support Keith Matune in the March 18 primary with your vote.
