Chicago area Congressman and Republican U-S Senate candidate Mark Kirk visited the river city today to outline what he calls his Peoria Agenda.
Kirk was joined by Mayor Jim Ardis and several law enforcement leaders as he outlined the 9-point plan for Peoria.
It calls for cracking down on crime, attracting economic growth and supporting modernization of the 182nd Airlift Wing among other things.

"My general preference is to make sure that we do the basic functions of the federal government well, law enforcement, making sure that we honor commitments to a well ordered society." he said.

Kirk says he has announced similar agendas for Quincy, Springfield and Rockford.
