Mike Frerichs is a native son of East Central Illinois whose values and ideals were shaped by the hard working people he grew up with. The son of a Teamster truck driver and a University of Illinois secretary, Mike worked his way through Yale University after which he returned home to Gifford, Illinois to begin working for the people and communities that gave him so much.
Twice elected to the Champaign County Board and since 2002 serving as the Champaign County Auditor, Mike Frerichs reputation as an effective fiscal watchdog and dedicated steward of the public’s tax dollars are exactly the type of values and experience that Springfield so desperately needs.
In 2006 the 52nd State Senate District faces many challenges; diminished funding for the University of Illinois, high gas prices, good paying jobs leaving the area, and health care costs continuing to skyrocket. It’s a tall order to fix these problems and in the process make peoples lives better here in East Central Illinois, but at 6’8’’ Mike Frerichs is just the man to get the job done.
Please contribute whatever you can so that we can send Mike to Springfield this November.
Mike Frerichs, Working for Our Future!
