Welcome

Welcome to my legislative website. I have created this tool for constituents to learn more about what I’m working on in Springfield, important information about the District, as well as local events taking place in our area.

I feel it is an honor to serve the residents of the 42nd Senate District. It is just as important that resources are available to keep you informed and give you an outlet to have your voice heard. Please take time to visit this site as it grows and see how I am working for your interests in our community.

Best Wishes,

Linda Holmes
