“Thank you to everyone that participated. We have so many talented people in the 100th District. It was great to see so many pictures to make me feel at home. My staff and I had a hard time choosing just one. I will be hanging several in my Springfield Office. I look forward to the next round of photos,” stated Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer.

Individuals whose pictures are selected will have their photo framed and hung in Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer’s Springfield Capitol office and will be invited to his Springfield office once it has been displayed. The 100th District includes all or portions of Adams, Brown, Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Morgan, Pike, and Scott Counties.
