Meet Christine - Mom on a Mission

Rise up! Get involved and change the course of Illinois. We can no longer be silent and allow these disastrous Progressive movements to continue. Life has a way of shifting and changing. I prefer to call it "Divine Intervention".

I am a mother, a business owner, and committed to my community where I have lived for almost 29 years. I have also been a small business owner involved in residential and business real estate investments and hold a BA with an emphasis in Economics and Communication. 

These past few years have brought about many obstacles, and opened my eyes to the lack of common sense used in making decisions affecting not only our state, but our local communities. The division that our Government has caused and the deafening silence from our local elected officials, I believe have contributed to most of the failures of Illinois.

Great Concern for Education

The breakdown of our educational system is a great concern. There is a push towards removing the power of local school boards. This divisive new curriculum and the sexualization movement of our children should not be mandated in the curriculum. Schools need to be open with in-person learning. Parents' rights need to be a priority when it comes to providing their children with the best educational opportunities and education.

An Advocate for Safer Communities

Our future leaders need to develop socially, emotionally, mentally and educationally. The ludicrous push to defund our police, and the bills that have been voted on is not decreasing crime, or keeping our communities safe. The motive is unknown to me; honestly, who does not want our communities safe?

There is no accountability for the criminals, and this starts from the top down. The path towards removing guns from law abiding citizens is unjust! Our police are not the enemy. This is why I began "Back the Blue" and organized the first rally at Columbus Statue in Chicago. Remember that planned and purposeful attack on our police officers? Remember who had a hotline for the antagonist and criminals who threw bricks and fireworks harming our police to file complaints? Mayor Lightfoot and our Governor along with the elected officials who remained silent have all contributed to the destruction of Chicago. Mayor Johnson is following in her footsteps.  He actually is taking it a step further and that is to prioritize illegal immigrants over Illinois citizens.

Supporter of Small Businesses, Less Taxes to Support a Stronger Economy

The shutdown of our economy can never happen again! This was an economic failure. Removing the control of the government and the harsh threats are mandatory steps to keep Capitalism alive. Every small business is essential to their livelihood and those of their employees.

I am part of "Re-open Illinois" that has been fighting against this tyrannical control. Illinois has a fiscal problem that is causing residents to flee. Taxing has increased. The pension deficit can not be ignored any longer. It is time to have a balanced budget.

Safe Communities for A Safer Tomorrow

Illinois residents deserve to live in safe communities. Everyone is essential in God’s eyes no matter how our Governor feels about his farm animals.

This purposeful division needs to end. We are stronger together.

I am Christine Shanahan McGovern, and I am running for Illinois State Representative in the 36th District.

Stand with me and together we can bring Common Sense back to Illinois.

I will represent you and Illinois by helping to pass legislation to provide better health care to our seniors, veterans, and mentally ill.

I will support programs for our youth to take them off the streets, meanwhile addressing the mental health care and drug crisis. My plan is to work with law enforcement to finally put an end to the senseless crime that is affecting our communities.

Support my mission today! Together we CAN win! Together we can bring back COMMON SENSE to Springfield! 

Vote for Christine Shanahan McGovern for Representative for District 36!
