He $300,000 off of soaring property values near the 606, which he helped approve.[3] His campaign committee shares officers with two developer PACs: Midwest Construction PAC Neighborhood Building Owners Alliance PAC. He has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from construction, private businesses and pro-business groups. [4] He narrowly avoided a runoff in 2015[5] and faces a challenger in 2019.[6]
