State Representative Charlie Meier announced he will seek re-election to the Illinois House of Representatives. Meier is running for re-election in the Republican primary to be held on March 19, 2024.
Representative Charlie Meier serves as the Assistant House Republican Leader for the 103rd General Assembly, joining the leadership team chosen by House Republican Leader Tony McCombie. Rep. Meier has a proven track record of advocating for the region while bringing common sense conservative values to the State Capitol.
“The General Assembly led by Chicago Democrats continue to trample upon our conservative values,” said Rep. Meier. “They want to ban our guns, close our coal mines, block real ethics reform, and let criminals out of jail for free. I am running again to try and stop this liberal anti-southern Illinois agenda. I will always fight for our most vulnerable, support pro-jobs and pro-family legislation, protect our right to bear arms, support law enforcement and support stronger anti-corruption reforms.”
Since Rep. Charlie Meier was first elected, the number of awards and recognition continue to stack up for his voting record on defending conservative principles, protecting our most vulnerable and job creation and job retention. Awards Charlie Meier earned include the “Champion of Free Enterprise” from the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the “Champion of Manufacturing” from the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association for his pro-jobs voting record. Meier also received the “Conservative Achievement” award for his conservative voting record in the Illinois House of Representatives, the IL Jaycee Hall of Fame, Play Maker Award, Partner in Advocacy, the Farm Bureau Activator “Friend of Agriculture” award, and the Dr. W.P. Plassman Award in recognition of outstanding volunteer service to the disabled presented by the Murray Parents Association.
In addition to his duties as an Illinois legislator, Charlie Meier is a farmer, residing on his family’s Centennial Farm located in Washington County. The 109th District includes portions of Bond, Clinton, Madison, St. Clair, and Washington counties.
