He faces Rep. Anna Moeller, of Elgin, a former city council member, who was appointed by Democrats to fill Farnham's seat.

Meyer is a Republican precinct committeeman and is the chairman of the Elgin Township Republican Central Committee. He and his wife, Courtney, have a son, Zachery.

He said he believes the state needs to start living within its means once again.

"We deserve better representation in Springfield," Meyer said. "Whether it's our school funding, public pensions, taxes or jobs, Illinois is going in the wrong direction. We pay too much for too little, while Chicago politicians dole out the proceeds."
