I'm Yoni Pizer, your new State Representative and the first openly gay person to ever represent our District in Springfield. Together with my husband, Brad Lippitz, I have raised and educated our two sons here, created and built small businesses here, coached soccer here, worshiped here, and loved, lived and breathed the dynamic and diverse culture of this incredible community.
After decades of involvement in our community, I'm honored to have the opportunity to step up and serve our community. I'm looking forward to continuing the long tradition of effective, honest and progressive representation of the 12th district.
At this moment in our country and state, the role of an active, involved, and dedicated state representative is crucial. We need someone who represents the values, priorities, and passions of this district and who will ensure that these values are translated into real and meaningful change. Someone who understands the challenges we all face with rising property taxes, small businesses and job creation, and attacks on ourselves and our rights. I will ensure that those who call our district home will have a keen ear and a strong voice in me.
Please join me and help continue the fight for our shared progressive values.
