I am Justin Gibson. I live in Granite City, Illinois. I am the Wikipedian of the Granite City Area. My areas of interest are Politics, Southern Illinois, STL Metro Area, Metro-East, Baseball, Hockey, Soccer, and Football. I graduated GCHS in 2009.
My political viewpoints tend to almost always favor the progressive/liberal wing of the Democratic Party. I am against the Republican Party, especially the Christian Conservative, Alt-Right, and the Tea Party factions of the party. I am now a precinct committeeman as of September 2018.
I am proud to have voted for Obama twice (2008, 2012) and Clinton (2016), in addition to voting for the party further downwards.
