State Representative Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) has one of the best conservative voting records in the Illinois House of Representatives which is why he received the ‘Conservative Achievement’ award for the 2021 session of the House of Representatives. The conservative award was recently presented to Rep. Meier by the American Conservative Union Foundation.
“I am honored to earn the ‘Conservative Achievement’ award for having one of the most conservative voting records at the State House. My constituents can count on me to be their conservative voice in the Illinois legislature.” said Rep. Meier. “The Democrat-controlled legislature has gone too far with their liberal agenda that has led to record inflation, high gasoline prices and high electricity and natural gas prices. I won’t stop defending our conservative values in the legislature.”
According to the American Conservative Union Foundation, their state ratings are meant to reflect how elected officials view the role of government in an individual’s life. The ratings reflect the political philosophy that sovereignty resides in the person, and its elected officials’ essential role is to defend Life, Liberty and Property.
The American Conservative Union Foundation ratings found here are designed to educate the public about how consistently elected officials adhere to conservatism by carefully examining the entire docket of legislation introduced in Illinois every year.
