Local State’s Attorneys Endorse Plummer Campaign

Troy, IL – Jason Plummer, Republican candidate for State Senate, has received two high profile endorsements from the State’s Attorneys of Effingham and Fayette Counties. Bryan Kibler, State’s Attorney for Effingham County, and Josh Morrison, who is serving as Fayette County State’s Attorney, are both throwing their support behind Jason Plummer, a businessman, who has made law and order a central theme of his campaign.

"Jason's committed to protecting our community," Kibler stated. "For example, Jason has reached out early and often seeking to help my office find solutions needed to combat the opioid epidemic. His beliefs and views reflect our shared values here in Effingham County. As our State Senator, I know that Jason will work hard to make our community even better. I’m encouraging everyone to vote for Jason Plummer in the Republican Primary on March 20th."

Morrison believes Plummer is the strongest and best prepared candidate in the race. "Jason Plummer knows Southern Illinois. He has proven knowledge of our workforce, the community, and what businesses need to be successful. His commitment to law enforcement and ending the opioid epidemic are enough for me to give him my endorsement," Morrison said. "However, what really impresses me about him, and what I think will make him a great Senator, is his ability and willingness to listen to his constituents and to the needs of the community and passionately work for what is important to us."

Plummer, who is Vice President of R.P. Lumber Company and a veteran of the Navy Reserves, was honored by the support. "Effingham and Fayette Counties are very fortunate to have Josh Morrison and Bryan Kibler defending their communities. I’ve gotten to know them both and their dedication to public service is exemplary. My campaign is centered upon keeping our district safe and I look forward to working with local officials across the district to ensure that they have the resources and representation they need from Springfield," Plummer said.
