Capitol Fax has an annual series of recognition one of which recognizes legislators.
This year, State Rep. David McSweeney won top honors on the Republican side of the House of Representatives.
Here is what was written here:
The 2018 Golden Horseshoe Award for Best Republican Illinois State Representative goes to Rep. Dave McSweeney…
(H)e has been able to effectively pass legislation across the aisle when most of the Caucus has been ineffective. He dealt with sexual harassment payoffs and township government, even when his party objected to it.
He continuously called out the Governor for his mistakes even if it meant he could have had retribution against him.
While he won’t make friends in talks about taxes he continuously gets Democrats to sign on and help pass his bills.
