Petersburg, Illinois 62675
I am a fifth generation Illinoisan, who was born, raised, and now lives in Petersburg, a mile from where President Abraham Lincoln first entered politics. Lincoln has always filled my imagination as our nation’s greatest political example of moral leadership, and I am running for Governor because our state should be exceptional, but our politics are terrible – I want to make Illinois a “shining city on a hill” that Lincoln would be proud of.

Piton for U.S. Senate 2022
Geneva, Illinois 60134
I'm a husband, father of five children and part of the first generation in my family to be born in America. I'm the last of 10 children and my parents were the largest family ever to be released from a Communist Country - because under Communism, you're not free. I finished college in less than 3 years, had my securities license at age 18, was a CFA at 23 and by 28, I had my MBA and then co-founded an investment firm. I have no desire to accumulate physical wealth for myself anymore. My mission is bigger than me, it's really about you and about this great country.
