JacobsWelcome2014Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my legislative website.  It is my honor to serve the citizens of the 36th Senate District in the Illinois General Assembly.  On this website, you can learn a little bit about me, my record in the General Assembly, and the services I can provide you.

Right now, my top priorities are bringing more jobs to to our area, increasing economic development in the region, finding a responsible budget solution, and putting an end to business as usual in Springfield.  I am most proud of the projects that have come to the 36th District including the expansions of Western Illinois University, the Northeast Sports Complex in East Moline, and the expansion of Douglas Park in the City of Rock Island.

I always welcome feedback from my constituents, so if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me.

QC-I74-bridge-jacobsSenator Mike Jacobs announced today a $10 million investment to construct the new I-74 Mississippi River bridge linking Illinois and Iowa in the Quad Cities.

“The region needs this type of investment not only for the good paying jobs it brings, but because the expansion and infrastructure upgrade will lead to economic growth that benefits everyone. I’m proud to advocate for this type of project," Sen. Jacobs said.

JacobsAK-CHFULTON, Ill. — Providing local and state resources to communities is something Sen. Mike Jacobs (Moline-D) has always prided himself on, and on Wednesday, he brought those services to the people of Fulton — more specifically the seniors of Fulton.

For Jacobs, the senior population of a community is a crucial piece to its development and he is more than willing to tap into that wealth of knowledge to improve the 36th Senate District of Illinois.

Representative Pat Verschoore and Jacobs worked tirelessly to secure the $13.7 million necessary to complete the construction project.  

“This project was a long time coming. It’s great to see the improvements and additions made to the grade school to ensure students have an updated and safe learning environment,” said Jacobs. “The most important gift we can give our children is a solid education. The enhancements made to the schools will give teachers and administrators an important tool to educate future generations.”

Jacobs met with Northeast Jr. High Principal Jim Widdop and George O. Barr School Principal Michael Hughes, to discuss upcoming projects and needs of the schools.
