Hi, I’m Benjamin Chapman.
I’m a lifelong resident of Mahomet, Illinois and I’m running for Illinois State Senate in the 51st Senate District.
Democracies are predicated on elections. Elections are predicated on choices. Before my entry into this race, a progressive choice was not on the ballot. LGBTQIA rights, universal healthcare, environmental preservation, electoral reform, and women’s rights were not on the ballot. This campaign is about putting them there.
We need to challenge every city council seat, every county board seat, every state assembly seat, and every congressional seat. That’s how we take back a country, and that’s how we fix a broken political system. One mind, one vote, one election at a time.
