The election is almost upon us. This Tuesday, November 6, Americans will go to the polls across the country to make a fundamentally important choice about our nation's future. Regardless of your views and beliefs, I hope that you will participate in this most essential ritual of citizenship. Polls are open from 6am until 7pm, and you can find out where your polling place is here.
I also hope that you'll consider voting for me, based upon your assessment of my record of service in the House for the last two years as well as upon my plans for the future. I have worked hard to represent our district's progressive values in Springfield while also being realistic and clear about our state's very serious fiscal problems -- and while pushing us toward systemic, sustainable solutions to those problems, even when those solutions require real shared sacrifice.
This approach has earned me endorsements from, among others, Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, Personal PAC, Sierra Club Illinois, Brady PAC-IL, the Illinois Federation of Teachers, the Journal & Topics, and the Chicago Tribune. I am thrilled to have the support of these organizations, and I would be honored and humbled if you would join them and vote for me this Tuesday. Thank you very much for your consideration.
