I’m supporting Angie Bodine for state representative, 69th District. Using VoteSmart.org for the voting record of her opponent, incumbent Joe Sosnowski, I discovered his votes do not support working families. While Angie supports reasonable workplace provisions to accommodate pregnant women, Joe voted no. Angie supports child care benefits for eligible families and requiring health insurance to cover contraceptives so families can plan when to afford a child — Joe voted no. Angie supports prohibiting employers from discriminating on basis of gender — Joe voted no.

When 20 of us went to Springfield to rally for the Equal Rights Amendment, Angie was with us. Sosnowski voted no; he refused to speak with his constituents. Angie worked to get the passenger rail question on the ballot because it will bring new jobs and businesses to the state line — he proposes whether we should have Chicago be a separate state!

Whereas Angie will consider being state representative her full-time job and believes in properly funding public schools, it’s Sosnowski’s part-time job, second to his management position at a private, religious school.

If elected, Angie Bodine will be the only female voice for the state line area and will listen to us.
