Welcome to my legislative web page. Thank you for entrusting me to represent you in Olympia. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously. This is where you can quickly find a variety of information on my priorities, press releases, my biography and other items of interest.
Serving as your state representative, I have spent time in Olympia working on a variety of issues that impact the 7th Legislative District. Through my experience, I have learned that in order to get things done for you, it takes a combination of hard work, the ability to work across the aisle and, most important, to listen to your needs to ensure my focus is in the right direction.
I remain committed to focusing on private-sector job creation. Our part of the state is still struggling with high unemployment. The best way to address our state and local government budget issues is to get people back to work. The Legislature must get serious about getting government out of the way of job creators.
This is your government and your feedback is important to me. My door is always open to you and I want to hear your opinion on issues you care about. Please call, write or send an e-mail with your concerns, suggestions or questions anytime.
Joel Kretz, State Representative
Deputy House Republican Leader
(R – Wauconda)
