Joshua Griffith, an Abingdon Republican running against Rep. Norine Hammond (R-Macomb) in the GOP primary in the 93rd House District, is taking aim at practices he sees as negatively impacting residents.

"I think we have a lot of key problems," Griffith told the West Central Reporter in a interview Thursday.

Griffith also responded to questions about the upcoming schedule for state legislators that shows the General Assembly is only scheduled to be in session less than 20 days in the first trimester of the year.

"Obviously, they need to be in session to make these things happen," Griffith said, referring to necessary reforms such as a move toward a modern 401(k) system to help fix the state's pension problems.

Griffith said it will take change at the state level to really tackle Illinois' problems.
