Serving as your State Representative has been a great honor and a tremendous responsibility. I have decided to try to take my advocacy on behalf of our community's shared goals one step further, which is why I’m running for the State Senate. That will leave a vacancy in the House of Representatives, and I’m hopeful you will join me in supporting Laura Fine to replace me as State Representative in the 17th District.
Laura is a perfect fit to represent our district. She is a mother, teacher and accomplished community volunteer. Laura is not running for personal gain, but rather as a way of giving back to the community that rallied around her and her family following a horrific car accident that almost took her husband’s life.
Laura is committed to working with all parties to make our state and our district a better place to live. She knows that business-as-usual politics in Springfield have caused our state tremendous pain and need to change, and, like me, she is committed to making that change.
Her passion for high-quality education is another reason why I believe Laura would do a fantastic job in the Illinois House. We are both educators and know how important it is for our community to retain its high educational standards as well as access to the many resources that are available to our children.
I hope you consider my personal endorsement of Laura Fine for State Representative when you come out and vote on Election Day this year. I’m confident in Laura’s skills and ability to work with others to do what is right for our community. I also know that if we are both fortunate to be elected as your respective State Senator and State Representative, we will work together as a team to represent you and your family.
