Why Andy’s Running for State Senate
I’m running for State Senate to help restore fiscal sanity, to make equitable school funding our top priority and to expand and protect the middle-class.
We need a balanced approach to budgeting to save more money, keep our promises, and invest in education and our economic future. We will need to sacrifice, but we must do so in a way that’s smart, fair and just for our most vulnerable populations.
It’s time to change the worst-in-the-nation system to one that is fair to every child regardless of where they live. We’ve been taught that education is the great equalizer in this country. Let’s stop talking and make it so in Illinois.
State leaders need to get out of bed every day and go to work for the middle-class. We need to protect the rights of teachers, first responders, construction workers and nurses who want to organize and collectively bargain, and most importantly, we need to fully embrace a middle-class economic agenda that includes work supports like child care and training to build the middle class.
That is why I’m running for State Senate and I hope I can count on your support.
